Carter told us he didn’t know it was Pickett’s vehicle until he got inside.

According to the criminal complaint, security video shows Carter arriving at the dealership on May 24 in his own vehicle and then departing in Pickett’s SUV.

Police tracked Carter’s vehicle to her home in Murrysville. That’s where Pickett’s vehicle was found, according to the complaint.

We spoke to a neighbor, who said Carter was acting erratically when she saw him in an SUV she didn’t recognize.

Carter must also pay $4,500 in restitution to repair damage to Picketts’ SUV.

Carter is charged with receiving possession, unauthorized use of a vehicle and theft. Another court date is scheduled in five weeks.
