A volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America has been charged with attempting to have sex with a minor. The United States Attorney's Office says 50-year-old Michael Engler was arrested during an undercover operation that found Engler allegedly agreeing to meet a person he thought was a 14-year-old male in order to engage in sexual activity. The investigation remains open because of Engler's affiliation with the Boy Scouts. Authorities are concerned there might be additional victims. If you have any information about Engler, please contact the St. Louis County Police Department at 314-889-2341.

The Westboro Baptist Church has announced plans to picket Games 3 and 4 of the World Series at Busch Stadium this weekend.  

The Kansas-based church has been banned in some states from protesting near the funerals of servicemen and women and is known for disrupting services of private citizens as well.

The church is calling for protesters to demonstrate against "the worthless strutting peacocks of these two baseball teams...glorifying themselves instead of God".  

St. Louis city police have said security downtown will be heightened for the Fall Classic.

Police Chief Sam Dotson met Monday with officials from the FBI, ATF, Homeland Security, and the Missouri Highway Patrol to discuss extra safety measures.

COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Three people are facing charges after authorities say they stole more than $50,000 worth of jewelry during a burglary in southwestern Illinois.

 

   Madison County officials say 20-year-old Dylan R. Bird, 19-year-old Jessica E. McCarty and 24-year-old Joshua M. Cooley are each charged with felony residential burglary.

   They're each being held on $50,000 bond.

 

   Prosecutors say the jewelry and another $300 in cash was stolen last week from a home in Collinsville. About half the stolen jewelry has been recovered.

 

   McCarty and Bird have also been linked to another theft and are facing other charges for that case.

 

   It wasn't clear if the three had lawyers and telephone listings for the trio couldn't be found.

Four years after the discovery of lead paint forced closure of the St. Louis Mounted Police stables in Forest Park, the stables are open once again. The stables were closed for remediation in 2009. Lt. Carlos Ross says three police officers and one park ranger are certified to ride six horses, but he is seeking to increase those numbers. The St. Louis Mounted Police Unit dates to 1867. The unit disbanded in 1948 but was re-established in 1970.
