SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Sheboygan police say they were able to track down a theft suspect because he left behind his library card, which he apparently used to try to unlock a tavern door.
Thirty-four-year-old Kristopher G. Lehnhardt was charged Friday with misdemeanor counts of theft and property damage.
Prosecutors say a bartender called police in early-morning hours last month after finding the bar's lights on, a cooler open and a window screen slashed in the basement.
The criminal complaint says the bartender also found Lehnhardt's library card on the floor by a door.
More than four cases of beer were missing.
A telephone listing for Lehnhardt couldn't be found Saturday evening. Online court records didn't list a defense attorney.
