WEST SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) - State police in Pennsylvania say a trespassing suspect used his own credit card to jimmy open a garage door, then left it behind when the homeowner suddenly appeared and startled him.

The important clue helped police arrest 41-year-old Brent Henry, of East Butler, on Saturday in Clay Township.

Police tell the Butler Eagle (https://bit.ly/19PtgTC) that Henry used the card to pick the lock at a friend’s mobile home.

Police say the homeowner heard a noise and caught Henry, who ran away but left the credit card behind.

Police say Henry told them he planned to take some gasoline for another friend’s car.

Online court records don’t list a defense attorney to comment on the charges.

Henry faces a preliminary hearing on criminal trespass and other charges April 7.
