RICHMOND HEIGHTS (KMOV.com) -

A man is facing charges for allegedly breaking into a home in Richmond Heights in early March.

Jesse Luecking is charged with second degree burglary and stealing. Police believe he broke into a house in the 7400 block of Wise Avenue around 9:00 a.m. on March 3. He allegedly stole electronics, jewelry and cash.

A neighbor’s surveillance camera caught Luecking in the act.

“When I saw the videotape, I thought it was suspicious to see someone just standing in front of someone’s house, just standing there, looking into the street for about two minutes, and then turnaround and walk back in the direction they came from. He went across someone else’s property and stopped at the end of their driveway,” the burglary victim said.

Officers arrested Luecking a few days later and took him into custody. Police said they recognized him because he was wearing the same outfit that he had on during the burglary.
