A warrant is out for a burglar dubbed the "Moss Man" since he failed to show up in court for his trial in Oregon. Gregory Liascos of Portland got the nickname because he was arrested in full-body camouflage outside a museum. Police say he had cut a hole in the wall and was about to break into the building. Officers found a back-pack and a bike but didn't find a person until a police dog took a bite out of what looked like the ground. It was Liascos dressed in an outfit that military snipers wear to blend in with vegetation. He claimed it was all a mistake and the outfit was a gift from his kids.
