Man pleads guilty to raiding nephew's piggy bank

May 18th, 2013 in News

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A north St. Louis County man admits that he stole money from his 4-year-old nephew's piggy bank to use for drugs and prostitutes.

KSDK reports (http://on.ksdk.com/YQOCa4) 31-year-old Baron Calmese pleaded guilty Friday to a felony stealing charge. He will be sentenced next month.

Calmese was arrested last July after he took more than $500 for his nephew's piggy bank.

Investigators say Calmese took the money after first asking the boy's mother - his sister - if he could borrow some change. The woman told Calmese he could take $2 but he took all the money he could shake out of the bank.
