Johnson County deputies arrested a man Tuesday after he allegedly climbed in the window of a bar and stole money out of the cash register.

Steven Adcock, 40, address unknown, was charged Aug. 24, 2010, with third-degree burglary.

According to the complaint, Adcock was in the Black Diamond Road House, Oxford, Iowa, on Aug. 20, 2010, when the bar closed. Adcock left the bar but allegedly re-entered through a window, deputies said.

Deputies said once the defendant was inside, he stole money from the cash register and tried to remove a safe from the establishment.

Authorities said Adcock’s fingerprints were found on the cash register and he has been identified by a video surveillance camera.

Third-degree burglary is a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison or a maximum $7,500 fine.
