Man pleads guilty to raiding nephew's piggy bank

CLAYTON — 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.

KSDK reports 31-year-old Baron Calmese 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 from 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.
