Police: Suspects Arrested for Burglarizing Drug Dealer’s Home

The admitted drug dealer suspects he owed the burglars money, police said.

St. Louis County Police arrested two suspects on suspicion of burglary after a man heard and watched the suspects break into his home, police said.

The victim, who lives in the 6300 block of Towne Woods Drive, told police he sells drugs from his home and suspected the burglary may be related to owing the suspects some money, according to the South County precinct’s weekly blotter.

On Oct. 26, two black males broke into the house by throwing a landscaping stone through a glass door. When the homeowner heard suspects downstairs stepping on broken glass, he fled the house and watched the two men get back into their car and leave.

Police stopped and arrested the suspects, but the homeowner said he did not want to prosecute for the burglary.

So will the drug dealer now be arrested for admitting to selling drugs?

Can't be arrested for "admitting" to sell drugs, but I'm sure the police drug unit will be checking in on it.

So why didnt the police search the "suspects" house for drugs??? Something definitely wrong with our system!!! I wouldnt think they'd need a search warrant since they bust into drug houses all the time! just saying! Big LOSER drug dealer in Oakville!! Now we all know what block he lives on so we can all score if we want! lol
