A man allegedly managed to get away after stealing cash from a register early Friday morning--but left behind his identification.

Police say Daniel Munoz made it much easier for officers to catch him after leaving his wallet and ID card at the Walgreens on 1855 Southgate Rd in southwest Colorado Springs. Munoz is accused of grabbing cash from an open register, then biking away from the scene. The suspect reportedly stole the cash while buying a lighter from the store.

Authorities soon caught up to the suspect less than a mile away on Asbury Place. When an officer ordered him to stop, police say Munoz tried to head butt him. The officer knocked Munoz down and took him into custody.

Police later determined that prior to his trip to Walgreens, Munoz had stolen several DVDs from Walmart. He was taken to the CJC on several charges, including attempted second-degree assault on a peace officer.
