Police have arrested a 52-year-old man suspected of breaking into a Pioneer Square bar and stealing thousands in alcohol and cash.

The suspect was arrested after police responded to a report of a trespasser  sleeping in the lobby of an apartment building in the 400 block of 15th Avenue East early Sunday morning, according to police.

The man was arrested on warrants not associated with the burglaries, but once he was taken to jail for booking he was identified from surveillance photos as the booze bandit, police said.

Detectives had earlier released a set of photos taken by surveillance cameras that showed a man with a bandaged face and a distinctive tattoo on his arm.
