A homeless Belleville man is in jail after a relative says the suspect stole items when the relative gave him a place to stay.

Ronald A. Pauly, 24, whose last known address was 1211 W. A St., was charged with a felony count of theft for allegedly taking socket sets from the relative who lived on South 11th Street in unincorporated Belleville.

Pauly is in jail on $100,000 bail.

According to St. Clair County Clerk's Office records, Pauly has a lengthy history of problems with police. He is awaiting court appearances for charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and four separate cases of driving on a suspended license.

One of those incidents includes a charge of attempting to flee or elude a police officer while another includes a charge of leaving the scene of an accident. He also has convictions for felony theft, disorderly conduct and burglary.
