Not until the next day did the authorities realize he was a wanted man for numerous break-ins. Officer Robeson said that they had been looking for him for months.

The thief hid in the bushes but had to relieve himself, so he peed in a bush that just happened to have a wasps' nest! Now the wasps were mad and attacked the poor crook who left the tank and actually ran toward the police for help! It was one of the easiest arrests ever! Brown was treated at a hospital and stood before a judge the next day. Now that's what I call a "sting operation"!
