(KMOV) – Police are crediting an employee with taking down a man who stole from a west St. Louis carpenter’s union hall early Tuesday morning.
Authorities said the suspect entered the Carpenter’s Hall on Hampton near West Park around 7:55 a.m.
Police said he approached the teller’s window and asked for change. As the employee retrieved a money envelope, that suspect crawled through the window, grabbed the money from the teller and fled out of the business.
Authorities said an employee caught up to the suspect after chasing him several blocks and detains him until police arrived.
The suspect was taken into custody without incident.
