Man tries to disguise himself, but still gets caught by police

Posted: Updated:
MCMINN COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

A burglar caught red-handed tried to trick police with a disguise, but wound up behind bars in McMinn County.

Last Friday, a man later identified as Matthew Whitley was caught rummaging through a woman's car. The victim threatened to call police and he took off running.

Officers were able to identify Whitley from the witness description and found him at a nearby gas station, but in different clothing.

Whitley was wearing overalls, to try and conceal the clothes he was wearing.  He is facing several charges, including felonies.
