The Athens County Sheriff says he hopes criminals keep making it easy on his guys.

Pat Kelly says one of his deputies arrested a man last night after he dropped his wallet at the scene of the crime.

He says a State Highway Patrol Trooper was driving through The Plains and saw someone trying to steal items out of a vehicle at Jim's Service Center.

Kelly says when deputies looked in the vehicle, they found Josh McCoy left his wallet and blood samples.

Kelly says "These criminals are making it very easy on my guys."

He went on to say "if they just keep it up, it's helping us out quite a bit."
