We have some crimes of fashion going on in Poland.
A 22-year-old man
has been arrested
after he pretended to be a mannequin before stealing from a shopping center after it closed, police in Warsaw have said. Polish police said that mall employees and shoppers failed to notice anything unusual as the man stood frozen in the window.
Police have not released his name but we shall call him "Manny Quinn" for the purpose of this story.
Unfortunately, is not what you call a "model citizen."
I know it's hard to tell, but that's not an actual mannequin in the video. It's an Impostore.
Manny Quinn faces up to a decade in prison for allegedly “hunting” throughout the Warsaw mall once it closed and everyone was gone, stealing clothes and jewelry and treating himself to two restaurant meals.
I don’t blame him. A long shopping spree can make you really hangry. And you're not yourself when you're hangry.
“With a bag in his hand, he stood still in front of a shop window, pretending to be a display mannequin,” police in the central Warsaw district of Śródmieście
in a statement. “When he felt safe, he went hunting and robbed the island of jewelry.”
A photo released by authorities showed the suspect “with a bag in his hand frozen motionless, pretending to be a mannequin in front of a shop window.”
But this was not his first shopping spree.
Manny Quinn is also being accused of another fashion crime where he allegedly went to a shopping center bar after closing time and “ate his fill”, then exchanged his clothes for new ones at a luxury store.
Cops have also accused Manny Quinn of stealing from another shopping center, where they allege he took money from cash tills and tried to steal other items after it closed.
The man has been remanded in custody for three months.
In case you missed it, we
about another clever thief yesterday who faked 20 different heart attacks in order to get out of paying his restaurant bills.
Had these thieves lived in California, no one would have batted an eye in regard to their thievery theatrics.
Too bad the Polish man didn't live in
where smash and grabs have become far too common. He would have been able to commit his fashion crimes in broad daylight. No need to wait for everyone to go home.
