NIKISKI, Alaska (AP) - An Alaska man whose wallet was stolen at a municipal swimming pool helped track down a suspect when he saw food charges show up on his credit card.

The man Monday told Alaska State Troopers his wallet was stolen at the Nikiski (ni-KIS-kee) Pool.

The wallet owner checked online banking records and discovered a fraudulent charge at a Nikiski restaurant.

The restaurant had delivered food to the pool at the direction of the suspect.

Troopers Wednesday arrested 19-year-old Jomar Schwenke.

He’s charged with three counts of felony theft and misdemeanor credit card fraud.

He remained jailed Thursday at Wildwood Pretrial Facility.

He is represented by the Alaska Public Defender’s office, which does not comment on pending cases. A message left with the office in Kenai was not immediately returned.
