Police arrested a Rapid City man after he tried to pay his bar tab with the bartender's credit card. 

Joshua Edlund, 31, is accused of criminal entry to a motor vehicle, identification theft and possession of stolen property, according to Tarah Heupel, Rapid City police spokeswoman. 

Police were called to Sports Rock Pizza, 321 Seventh St., around 3 a.m. Saturday after the bar's staff found Edlund outside and brought him back inside to pay his bill, she said. 

Edlund was wearing the bartender's sunglasses and attempted to pay his bar tab with the bartender's credit card, Heupel said. The bartender had left the items in his vehicle near the bar, she said.
