A St. Louis man redefined the phrase, out of the frying pan and into the fire.

Clayton police were conducting a traffic stop when the suspect jumped out of his car and started run. He just didn't have a very good sense of direction...he ran across the street and directly into the St. Louis County Police headquarters.

Officers inside the building took the man into custody and charges are pending.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Police are searching for the car thief who got more than he expected when he took an idling car - a toddler in the backseat.

The 2-year-old is OK after the scare late Tuesday in St. Louis.

Police say a car was left running at an ATM. The child's father got out to use the machine and while he was gone, someone stole the car with the child inside.

Police found the car minutes later in an alley. The child slept through the whole ordeal.

Officers are looking at ATM video in an effort to find the suspect.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - More than 11 years after Mitchell Osburn was arrested in the stabbing deaths of three Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District workers, the case is finally resolved.

Osburn entered an Alford Plea Tuesday to three counts of each of first-degree murder and armed criminal assault. The plea is not an admission of guilt but a concession that there is enough evidence for a conviction.

Sentencing will be July 12.

The three workers in their 40s - Steven Weiss, Joseph Bisso and Robert Whitson - were among five sewer district workers socializing after a day of work at Lion's Park in the St. Louis County town of Valley Park on March 8, 2002.

Police said Osburn attacked them with a knife. He did not know the victims.

The community of Valley Springs was shaken last month by the mysterious stabbing death of an 8-year-old girl. The girl's 12-year-old brother told police he found her body and an intruder in their home, setting off a manhunt.

Authorities yesterday arrested the 12-year-old. The sheriff says the boy will be charged with homicide.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis County Police have shot and killed a man they say pointed an assault rifle at them.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that police haven't released the man's identity. Police spokesman Randy Vaughn says officers had gone to question the man early Saturday about a stolen car. Vaughn says when two officers arrived at the man's apartment, he opened the door holding an assault rifle and "racked it, chambering a round."

Both officers then fired at the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Vaughn says police recovered the rifle and several other weapons from the man's home.

Vaughn says the officers are on administrative leave until the investigation is completed.
