SAN ANTONIO – Joe Isenberg III is accused of holding a driver against her will and taking some of her belongings from her car without her knowledge.

An arrest warrant affidavit stated that the 25-year-old victim filed a complaint with the San Antonio Police Department after the Nov. 22 incident.

It stated that she said she told police she became tired while driving home after a night out and decided to take a nap in her car in the parking lot of a strip mall in the 6000 block of NW Loop 410.

The woman said she was awakened by a man who she thought was a police officer, ordering her to get out of her car. The affidavit stated that police determined the man was actually working for a private security company, hired to patrol the strip mall.

The woman said he made her perform a sobriety test, told her she passed then refused to let her leave. She said he also climbed into her car.

The affidavit stated at one point, the woman asked to use the restroom and the suspect told her to go behind a nearby dumpster.

She said she later noticed her iPad mini and credit cards were missing from her backpack, which was inside her car.

The affidavit stated that police obtained surveillance video from a gas station which they said shows Isenberg, still in his security uniform, attempting to use the stolen credit cards. They said when they questioned him, he told them his brother gave him the cards.

Police said they also located the stolen iPad.

Isenberg was arrested Wednesday on charges of theft and credit card abuse.
