Crime Reports Sept. 3 – 9

SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: DO YOU HAVE THAT IN MY SIZE?

A 300-plus man asking to try on “smaller-sized” women’s clothing that obviously “would not fit” from Forty-Five Ten also walked out of the Highland Park Village storefront around 11 a.m. Sept. 6 with a $1,450 Gucci Marmont Velvet bag without paying for it. Read more about his escapades elsewhere in this week’s police reports.

HIGHLAND PARK

Around 9 a.m., a couple walking their dog in the 3300 block of St. Johns Drive found a set of keys laying on the sidewalk.

A couple becoming familiar to the police reports lately were spotted again around 12:30 p.m. stealing luxury items from Highland Park Village. This time around, the 300-pound man and his partner in crime, a woman with different colored dreadlocks, had their greedy eyes on a pair of pool slide sandals, valued at $1,390, from Tom Ford. The duo uses a pretty obvious tactic where they ask a sales associated to look for something in the back of the store and then walk out with the merchandise. The couple is also suspected of stealing a purple Gucci mini Marmont purse worth $1,590 on Aug. 22 and $750 sneakers and $520 monster eyes shirt from Fendi on Aug. 28
