SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: BEDRAGGLED BANDIT
Sometimes you just have to have that cool shirt – even if you can’t afford it. A man standing about 6-foot tall and weighing about 300 pounds walked into Fendi at Highland Park Village to find out if “The Monster” shirt was available in a 5XL. While the sales associate went to the back to inquire about the said shirt and some white sneakers, the man grabbed a pair of the sneakers, valued at $750, the shirt, valued at $520, and left the shopping center in a silver Hyundai without paying. According to a police report, security at HPV had their eye on the large man because of how “sloppy” he looked. Too bad it wasn’t while he was actually stealing.
