ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis man was caught on camera wearing the same clothes he had on during a burglary, and upon seeing the photos, the suspect reportedly admitted, ‘you got me.’

According to a probable cause statement by the police, around 3 a.m. on November 15, a business in the 1000 block of Locust Street was broken into. At first, the business owner dismissed it as a false alarm. However, upon later reviewing the surveillance footage, an intruder was identified.
