GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A man accused of armed robbery in Allouez has been convicted, after sheriff's deputies spotted his vehicle a short time later in the jail parking lot.

WLUK-TV reports that in December Brown County sheriff's deputies spotted a vehicle sought in a gas station robbery later that day at the county jail work release center.

Sheriff's deputies say they went to take a look inside and allegedly found items reported to be stolen from the station.

Jarred Zeise, the registered owner of the vehicle, was inside the visiting section of the building, where he was arrested.

The 24-year-old pleaded no contest on Thursday. He will be sentenced May 5.
