MONROE, La. (AP) A panhandler whose sign read "Vision of a cheeseburger Bless U!!!" reportedly was carrying enough cash for a full-dress dinner when he was arrested.

Police reports say 54-year-old Thomas Edward Moriarty Jr. had $252 in cash, four Walmart gift cards and almost $9 in change.

The News-Star says he's being held in lieu of $500 bond after being booked Tuesday on one count of solicitation. He was still in jail Thursday.

Police reports say people have been complaining about a panhandler at a major intersection, and officers had warned Moriarty that soliciting is illegal.

The report says Moriarty told officers that he was trying to get money for a motel room.

Police say they learned he's been holding up his sign at the same spot for three months.
