A Watertown man was accused of stealing a change jar from Wendys, 419 State St., earlier this month.
City police arrested George J. Lewis, 33, whose address is listed as the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building, and charged him with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
Mr. Lewis is alleged to have stolen a Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption jar from the restaurant on Jan. 4, police said. Police did not give a value for the contents of the jar.
He was processed at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building and released to the custody of the sheriffs office. He was issued an appearance ticket to City Court.
