A man admitted disabling his stepfather’s video surveillance system during a March 20 burglary and stealing jewelry from his home in St. Peters.
Michael Anthony Glatz pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary and felony theft and was placed on five years probation by St. Charles County Circuit Court Judge Jon A. Cunningham.
Glatz ran through a wooden fence, dropping some stolen jewelry, when his stepfather arrived at his home in the 1400 block of Ticonderoga Drive, according to St. Peters Police. Glatz told police he was high on Xanax when he ran through the fence, according to a court document.
The stepfather had been monitoring the surveillance system and saw that it had been disabled. He called police and went home. He was able to recover footage that showed Glatz arriving at his home.
Glatz told police he ripped wiring for a surveillance system out of the wall “because he was mad at the victim for installing video cameras.” His stepfather said he had the cameras installed because of Glatz.
Glatz also received five years probation on four counts of passing bad checks.
