(Port Angeles) – A man arrested last week for gluing ATM machines around Port Angeles, is back in jail after a theft spree.

Police say they arrested 65-year-old Charles Johnson of Port Angeles.

Police say Friday they received a report of a theft at a downtown business in the 100 block of W First Street. A male suspect believed to be Johnson had reportedly stolen an employee’s set of keys.

Later that afternoon, the same business called police again saying Johnson had returned to the store and stolen a t-shirt. Staff advised that they observed Johnson wearing the stolen shirt and confronted him. Johnson returned the shirt, but was wearing a second stolen shirt underneath. When asked for the keys that were stolen earlier in the day, Johnson fled.

He was found hiding in a back yard in the area.
