SCHUYLER, Neb. – Police say a Leigh man stole a SUV from a local high school and then left personal items in the vehicle.
Records say a 2006 Cadillac SRX was taken from Leigh High School on December 15th.
The next day, the vehicle was found in front of a Leigh residence and police located a coat and set of keys inside the SUV.
Police say the keys matched a Geo Metro belonging to 32-year-old Joseph Rojas that was recently towed. Security camera footage also showed Rojas wearing the same coat at a recent court appearance.
Rojas is charged with possession of stolen property, as well as trespassing and disturbing the peace from a separate incident.
He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
