A 34-year-old Lawrence man already on probation for a downtown Lawrence break-in earlier this year was arrested on suspicion of burglarizing a vehicle on the Kansas University campus Thursday evening.

Matthew C. Reynard was booked into Douglas County Jail after a KU Public Safety officer arrested him after 8 p.m. Thursday on suspicion of breaking into a vehicle near the Kansas University's endowment association. According to a Kansas University Public Safety Office offense report, Reynard took a cellphone from the vehicle and removed the phone's sim card. He is in jail on a $2,500 bond.

Reynard pleaded no contest in March to theft and criminal trespassing in connection with a January break-in at Sandbar Sub Shop, 745 New Hampshire St.

District Judge Michael Malone sentenced Reynard to 12 months of probation in the case, in which he was initially charged with aggravated burglary before a plea agreement.

Reynard has numerous prior convictions in Douglas County dating back to 2003. He has five theft convictions, two drug possession convictions and a 2003 conviction for criminal use of a weapon.

With five convictions what's it going to take to get this guy some serious jail time?
