Salina police didn't have much of a challenge finding a suspect when some ice cream was stolen from a Dairy Queen.

Police say the man recently broke into the Dairy Queen and stole $200 worth of ice cream.

While leaving with his treats, the man dropped some mail in a nearby parking lot, giving police his name and address.

Police Lt. Sean Morton says officers went to the address on the mail and arrested a 30-year-old man.

KAKE-TV reports the man is also a suspect in a burglary at a Salina plumbing business. He apparently dropped a motel room key during that heist, and police found items from the burglary in the room.
