A man was arrested last week after he allegedly was spotted wearing lacrosse gear that had been reported stolen from the University of Saint Mary, a police spokesman said.

The 48-year-old man was arrested Friday after he was seen wearing a lacrosse jersey, helmet and leg gear. Police came into contact with the man after receiving a report of a suspicious person in the area of Fourth and Limit streets.

He was arrested in the 400 block of Vilas Street, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

The suspect was taken into custody for a municipal warrant that previously had been issued. He also was arrested for allegations of possession of stolen property and burglary.

Authorities believe the suspect was wearing items taken from a shed that was burglarized on the Saint Mary campus.

Nicodemus said the university’s name on the jersey had been covered with spray paint.

The deputy chief said the man also is a suspect in vandalism to a business window at Hibbett Sports, 3400 S. Fourth St.
