(KMOV.com) – Police said a man admitted to burglarizing a home after they tracked him down thinking he was a different suspect.

Police said they had their guns drawn while they were searching for a suspect who was hiding in some bushes near the intersection of Lindbergh and Old St. Charles Rock Road Friday night.

Police told News 4 they thought he was a suspect in a stolen guns case. However, police said they determined he was not the suspect they were looking for, but officers said he later admitted to burglarizing a nearby home.

Authorities then proceeded to arrest the suspect.
