OREFIELD, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say an alleged thief apparently had a real taste for beef jerky.

State Police report that 22-year-old Andrew M. Wieder was arrested Friday for allegedly stealing a credit card, $200 in cash, and two bags of beef jerky from a car parked in a garage in Orefield. That’s just outside Allentown.

Wieder then allegedly used the credit card to purchase more beef jerky at a convenience store, as well as an iPad at a Wal-Mart. The alleged thefts took place in May.

Wieder is facing burglary, forgery and theft charges. He was released on $10,000 bond and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for August 9.

No attorney was listed on court papers and Wieder couldn’t be reached for comment.
