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.
Baron Calmese, 31, 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.
