LOXLEY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama authorities say a burglar appears to have returned to the scene of his latest crimes one too many times after the victims caught him in the act using a hidden baby monitor.

WKRG-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1k2OqBu) the storage shed where Chad Stapleton of Loxley keeps equipment for his catering business was burglarized three times this month. Fed up, Stapleton and his wife set up a baby monitor inside.

Just before 4 a.m. Friday, the Stapletons heard noise on the monitor and called police. Officers arrived in time to chase a suspect. Stapleton says police found his generator, an ice chest and a portable cooking burner jammed into the suspect's car.

Gene Muggins was arrested on charges related to the burglaries. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
