POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man in a southeast Missouri auto part store burglary after he left his heart monitor in front of the cash register.

The Daily American Republic reports that police stopped the suspect after the NAPA Auto Parts store in Poplar Bluff was robbed early Saturday. Police say he was carrying $270, the same amount stolen from the store.

A police report says he told police he was missing his heart monitor and needed to go back and look for it. A patrolman wrote in the report that when the suspect was told the device was found in the store, he responded, “Even though that may be the case, I still need my heart monitor.”

The man was booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree burglary and stealing.
