A northern Kentucky man wearing only a thong and carrying a knife allegedly videotaped himself attempting a burglary, then left the tape behind, police said.
That evidence ultimately led to his arrest, Fort Mitchell Police
Chief Steve Hensley said.
Rodney McMillen, 36, of Covington was charged over the weekend
with first-degree burglary.
"This is a very, very bizarre case, to say the least," Hensley
McMillen allegedly broke into a woman's apartment about 3 a.m.
EDT on Sept. 20, clad in only thong underwear and carrying a knife,
The woman fended off the attacker, who left the apartment and fled into a stand of trees near the apartment complex, Hensley said.
Investigating officers found a video camera the burglar left in
the apartment, Hensley said, and found video of McMillen's family
on the end of the tape, Hensley said.
Investigators were able to identify some of them and tracked
down McMillen at his mother's house in Norwood, Ohio, Hensley said.
McMillen was lodged in the Hamilton County Justice Center in
Cincinnati on $50,000 bond, awaiting extradition to Kentucky.
