Fox2 Video: Suspect in Robbery that Spurred Manhunt Blames Economy

The suspect allegedly stole "bath salts" from a bait shop in St. Charles County.

at about 2 p.m. Monday in the Bedford Falls subdivision off Hwy. 61 north of Wentzville.

A Fox2 video shows the man, who eluded police for seven hours, blaming the economy for his actions. "It makes a good man do bad things," he said.

An off-camera reporter asked, "So you don't use it?"

"No comment," the suspect said.

The suspect was taken into custody by officers from the and the St. Charles County Sheriff's depatment. His name has not yet been released.

The owner of the store where the bath salts were taken is scheduled for a trial this fall for selling illegal drugs. The bath salts stolen Monday will be tested to see if they are also illegal drugs and if the store owner will be subject to additional charges.

Could be because of people eating other people's faces off. This man could have been dangerously deranged.
