After arresting a Missouri man who logged his alleged thefts in a journal, authorities filled in his final entry: “02/06/2019 – Arrested Muahahaha,” according to a picture from the department.

The offbeat arrest was featured in the Ballwin Police Department’s “Weekly Roundup” report on Monday. A picture of the suspect’s journal, along with the police’s entry, was posted on the department’s Facebook page.
