Brian G. Arnold, 43, of 132 S. Orchard St., was arrested by city police Wednesday morning on charges of petit larceny and trespassing after he allegedly entered a store where he was no longer welcome and stole beer.
Police said Mr. Arnold entered Great American. 672 State St., and hid a can of Labatt Blue beer valued at $2.09 and a can of Budweiser valued at $1.99 in his coat pockets.
Because of prior incidents, Mr. Arnold had been advised to not enter the premises, according to police. He was taken to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building and held on $500 bail pending arraignment in City Court.
