LAKE ANDES-A man has been accused of felony burglary for allegedly stealing three beers.

Jonathon Abdo, 40, of Lake Andes, was arrested July 20 after a witness told law enforcement that he had seen Abdo entering a house between 1:30 and 2 p.m. through a sliding glass door that had come off its track.

When police spoke to the owner of the house, he told them that three beers were missing from his refrigerator.

At 4:47 p.m. the same day, Abdo was taken into custody. He was charged with second-degree burglary, a Class 3 felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine, and second-degree petty theft, a Class 2 misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.

He is scheduled for an initial appearance in Charles Mix County on Aug. 7.
