 (KMOV) – A convicted St. Louis killer who was granted a second chance at freedom admits to stealing from a home he was hired to work on.

Daniel Blount, nicknamed Orange Crush, was recently charged with breaking into a Maplewood home he was hired to rehab. 

The alleged burglary happened shortly after he walked out of prison as a convicted murderer.

Blount was sentenced to 30 years for a murder committed during a 1991 robbery in St. Louis. Under the terms of his first sentence, Blount was supposed to serve at least 85 percent of that sentence.

“(Blount) broke into the home through a side window, crawled in and gained access, and while in there removed several high-dollar tools, later selling those for personal use,” said Det. Michala Gilb with the Maplewood Police Department.

Police say Blount later admitted to the burglary to his boss and was turned in. He will likely face more prison time.
