Truck heist suspect also accused of shedding clothes

September 24, 2018

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say a man found naked last month underneath a desk at a Missouri park office is now accused of stealing a work truck at another park and shedding his clothes.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that 50-year-old Peter Gilbreth, of Joplin, is charged with tampering with a motor vehicle and sexual misconduct in last Wednesday’s incident at Ritter Springs Park in Greene County. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

Court documents say he emerged from the stolen truck wearing only shoes and then attempted to get into a bathroom as a woman was preparing the facility for a school field trip. Gilbreth also was arrested last month after authorities say a ranger at Prairie State Park found him naked, hiding under a desk in an office.
