ST. JOSEPH, Mo., March 30 2011 (UPI) — An observant security guard thwarted an attempted storage facility burglary by locking a man inside the unit, St. Joseph, Mo., police said.
Ronald E. Dennis, 49, was released from the Mini-Warehouse of St. Joseph and subsequently arrested for burglary by police, the St. Joseph News-Press reported.
The security employee had seen a slightly opened door on one of the units at 1 a.m. Sunday and had shut and latched it. Later he heard sounds “which was the suspect Dennis of St. Joseph, attempting to free himself,” Capt. Kevin Castle said.
Dennis remained in custody on a probation-parole warrant.
