St. Petersburg, Florida - Just like the bugs they're aiming to kill, workers scurry up ladders and across roofs when they tent a house. Warning signs go up about the dangerous fumigant pumped inside.
But St. Petersburg Police say that didn't stop Christopher Alexander, 25, from slitting tents with a knife and breaking into houses. He was arrested this week and charged with three of the risky burglaries.
"This man was obviously desperate enough to do exactly that," said Police spokesman Mike Puetz. "And he told us on one occasion he did get sick doing it."
