ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Prosecutors say a suspect stole more than $500 from his nephew’s piggy bank to buy a prostitute and drugs.
Baron Calmese Jr. appeared in court yesterday. He was arrested in September, and admitted to stealing $504 from his nephew. Calmese’s sister told investigators she gave him permission to take some change — $2 in quarters — out of the bank, but instead, he took all of the money.
When officers asked what he did with the money, he said, “Man, I bought a piece of (expletive) and some heroin.”
