A man still had time to squeeze in a workout even after allegedly stealing from the Butte YMCA.

Police arrested Daniel O’Neill, 30, of Butte Friday evening after he allegedly stole a “boom box” stereo from the YMCA at 2975 Washoe St.

Police allege he took the stereo from the YMCA about 8:20 p.m. and put it in his pickup truck. He then went back into the YMCA to finish his workout, according to the police report.

Workers at the YMCA saw the alleged theft and contacted police. Police say O’Neill was using the elliptical exercise machine when he was arrested.

He faces a misdemeanor theft charge and an out-of-county warrant. He was released from jail Sunday.
