Buy a commercial trap of some kind.  Even if he falls into your trap, he wil easily get back out.

I've tried all sorts of different commercial traps. Sticky, snap, live-catch, all of them....He keeps outsmarting them!

What are you using for bait?  The best thing is peanut butter.....out a bad in the center of a glue trap and leave it in a quiet part of the house.

Did that. He managed to snag the peanut butter and run off without getting stuck on the trap.
