Museum burlgar busted wearing "moss man" camo disguise.

A burglary suspect clad in full sniper camouflage was arrested hiding in the woods near Oregon's Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals Thursday.

A caretaker had reported a suspicious hole being cut from an outside bathroom into the building and police set up extra security.

The next day, deputies found a suspicious bike and backpack nearby.

A K9 unit soon found 36-year-old Gregory Liascos hiding in the woods, dressed head to toe in camouflage, a full-body Ghillie suit, that is used by police and military snipers and scouts.

Investigators said the K-9 hit on a spot on the ground then bit, and the hiding suspect cried out in pain.

He was not seriously hurt.

Nothing was stolen and Liascos was charged with burglary and criminal mischief.
