A St. Louis, Mo., man was charged on Sunday for allegedly swiping a motorcycle on Christmas Eve from Missouri’s River City Casino.
Michael Saal, 39, was charged with stealing a motor vehicle, according to St. Louis TV station KMO.
The theft was reported to local police shortly before 5 p.m. on Dec. 24.
The owner of the motorcycle arrived where he had parked it only to discover the bike was missing.
Police checked surveillance video. It showed a man appearing to be Saal driving around the motorcycle. The suspect repeatedly took photos of the vehicle.
Just an hour later, a silver truck was driven to a spot next to the motorcycle. Inside the truck were two people.
One suspect, who was wearing a black ski mask, placed tow straps onto the motorcycle. Then, the driver of the truck drove away, with the motorcycle in tow.
Police were able to identify Saal as the driver of the truck. They also said he admitted to the crime, KMO reported.
He was booked on Sunday and remained in custody early this week. His bail was set at $300K.
Missing Man Last Seen at Casino
Police are continuing to search for a missing man who was last seen at a Montana gaming property.
Roger Shelton of Williston, N.D., was spotted on Jan. 5 at the Black Gold Casino in Roosevelt County. It’s located near the North Dakota-Montana border.
He hasn’t been seen since.
Williams County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Ward said police performed what was described as a “forensic analysis” on the missing man’s phone records, bank accounts and vehicles, according to the Minot Daily News, a North Dakota news outlet.
It’s not clear if the analysis revealed any information about his current whereabouts.
Shelton’s name was also entered into a national database which lists missing persons.
It’s unclear if Shelton’s disappearance is suspicious or if police believe foul play may be involved.
