A Bucks County man is behind bars after attempting to steal a thousand dollars worth of ammunition.

Police say 41-year-old Craig Holtzman of Warminster stole at least $1,000 worth of gun ammo and scope securement rings from Cabela's in Tilden Township, Berks County.

Police then pulled him over near exit 40 of I-78 where they found the stolen goods.

Holtzman is being charged with retail theft and receiving stolen property.
