HELENA – A 41 year-old Helena man is accused of burglarizing a car wash and stealing a truck.

According to court documents, police responded to a report of a burglary on the 35-hundred block of Ptarmigan Lane Thursday.

Surveillance video captured a man police suspected to be William Rouse using a sledge hammer and a crowbar, to break into the car wash.

A vehicle in the video also appeared to match that of a truck reported stolen earlier that morning.

Rouse faces two charges of attempted burglary.

The judge set bail at $10,000.
