MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A 28-year-old man is facing a felony charge after police say he pocketed more than $1,000 in cash that had been dropped on the floor in a Minot hardware store.

The Minot Daily News reports that Nicholas Skelly, of Minot, is charged with theft of property lost, mislaid or delivered by mistake. He could face up to five years in prison.

Authorities say the incident happened in Acme Tool Crib last November. The alleged victim said he had planned to pay for a trailer rental in cash, but ended up paying by credit card and thought he had put the money back in his pocket.

Skelly is allegedly seen on store security footage picking up the money and pocketing it.

Skelly’s attorney, Ashley Flagstad, was not immediately available for comment.
