LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – When you're in a hotel lobby it's not uncommon to see people looking for things in their luggage. But a Louisville man was arrested after he started going through bags that weren't his.

An arrest report says Lee Augustus Jeffrey, 54, walked into the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the 300 block of West Jefferson around 1 p.m. March 5. Hotel staff said Jeffrey started going through a bag that belonged to a hotel guest.

Police said that Jeffrey was not a guest of the hotel or a member of the conference taking place there.

Jeffrey was charged with trespassing and failure to notify address change of his drivers license. He also is being held on an out of state warrant.
