CREVE COEUR, Mo. – A suspicious man who led Creve Coeur police through three neighborhoods early Wednesday morning was finally arrested and charged after a search that featured a drone and police dogs.

Police said Curtis J. Poynter, 37, was charged with first-degree burglary in connection with a Wednesday morning incident.

Police said it all started at around 2:45, when they received a report of a suspicious person pulling on car doors. About 10 minutes later, a home burglary alarm went off just a block away. Officers were already nearby and arrived in seconds to find the suspect had already gotten away.
