(KMOV) – A St. Louis man is charged with burglary after sneaking into a downtown hotel room and trying to steal a wallet over the weekend.
According to police, Michael Mack, 24, entered a room at the Holiday Inn near the Convention Center that was propped open by a housekeeper.
The housekeeper confronted Mack as he tried stealing a wallet. Mack threw the wallet down and ran as the housekeeper called security.
Police think he also broke into another room by convincing the staff he was a hotel guest.
