St. Louis County Police said in a report that Williams threw a landscaping brick through the dealership’s window sometime between 12:40 and 2 a.m. Dec. 13 at , 11400 New Halls Ferry Road. The report says Williams broke into the building to steal car keys and cash.

Williams cut himself on the glass, and police collected blood samples from the glass, the floor and a desk, according to the report. He was identified by DNA testing, police said.

Williams was arrested in Richmond Heights Jan. 2 after trying to steal clothing valued at $557 from Macy’s in the St. Louis Galleria, according to court documents.

A Richmond Heights Police report said store security personnel noticed Williams had a shopping bag and went into a changing room. When he came out of the changing room, he had fewer clothes than when he went in.
