LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man was arrested for stealing candy from a school and money from a 75-year-old man.

According to a Louisville Metro Police Department report, on September 10, Scott Sublett, 31, went over to someone's home and asked for money for a hotel room. The 75-year-old victim said no, took medication and went to sleep. According to the victim, when he awoke, his wallet and $500 were missing.
