Burglar gives up on teddy bear

Sheriff Patch

A Laclede County deputy responded to a burglary Tuesday foiled by an overly stuffed bear.

According to the incident report, the deputy investigating a burglary not in progress at Specialty Stair and Rail observed the window broken by a suspect who had attempted to abscond with the large stuffed animal, taking it from the front office to a rear window.

The bear however would not fit through the window, and the suspect apparently left without taking any property with only the bear as witness to the crime.
