A charity is asking for help after they were victimized by a burglar. 

In one week, Habitat for Humanity was burglarized in the Carondelet neighborhood two separate times, with the suspects taking around $15,000 worth of tools.

The organization is now asking for help to replace their stolen tools. Instead of giving tools, Kyle Hunsberger, director of construction, says money is the most helpful donation. He also says there is something else the community can do, "It goes without saying, don't buy tools from somebody that rolls up in a pickup truck and says they have a really good deal."

Anyone interested in helping, can donate at habitatstl.org

Anyone with information on the burglaries is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 866.371.TIPS

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for stealing sports memorabilia and electronics from an assistant coach for the St. Louis Rams, along with other crimes.

KSDK-TV reports that 25-year-old James Bright of Fenton also pleaded guilty in two other criminal cases at a hearing Tuesday.

Bright and an accomplice were accused of breaking into the Kirkwood home of Rams tight ends coach Rob Boras on New Year's Eve. The theft included NCAA rings and a gold NFL championship ring, along with a TV, a game system and other electronics.

Bright also admitted to burglary and stealing at two other properties.

The second suspect, 27-year-old Jeffrey Medcalf, is expected in court next month to enter a plea.

A teenager shot and killed last week while allegedly trying to break into a south city home is the same teen charged in a "knockout game" attack that made headlines.

Fifteen year old Demetrius Murphy had been charged in the 2011 attack on Matt Quain, the man Mayor Francis Slay and his body guard had found bleeding at the curb along South Grand.

Murphy had been charged in the attack, but those charges were dropped after a young witness refused to testify in that case.

Quain spoke with Fox 2 News Monday night after learning about Murphy's death. "You know, I'm not happy that somebody died," Quain said. But he did say he wished the violence would end. "I wish there was more that people could do to put an end to it."

Murphy's alleged burglary accomplice, 17 year old Michael Bryant is facing murder charges in the 15 year old's death. The homeowner is not expected to be charged.

A small town police chief is now unemployed, and he says it's because he criticized the Montgomery County prosecutor's handling of a burglar investigation. Mike Bland was fired from his post with the Bellflower, Missouri Police Department.

Bland's firing notice indicates that he was terminated for failing to get permission from city officials prior to an interview with Fox 2 News.

Bland told Fox 2 he had permission from the Mayor of Bellflower and he has the phone records to prove it. "There was numerous calls made between her and I about this exact case," Bland said. "And not only that, witnesses to the phone call itself."

Bland had criticized county prosecutors for failing to charge three burglary suspects who had confessed to the crimes.

In a statement Montgomery County’s Prosecuting Attorney said there had not been sufficient documentation to file criminal charges.
