Reno police: "Naked burglar" collared

RENO ” Two years after a nude man was caught on surveillance tape breaking into a convenience store and stealing alcohol and weapons, sheriff’s deputies in Reno think they’ve finally collared the “naked burglar.”

Adam Clay Baker, 24, was arrested at his residence in Cold Springs on Thursday and booked on a charge of burglary in the early morning break-in at the Spring Mart in Cold Springs on June 26, 2006, Washoe County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Brooke Keast said Tuesday.

A number of cameras captured video of the “naked burglar” from the time he entered the building, sprinted through the business gathering merchandise and attempted to disguise himself by placing a trash bucket over his head, Keast said

Deputies had questioned a number of suspects since the burglary but they were later eliminated because they did not match certain physical attributes, she said.
