SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 39-year-old man clad in a T-shirt and a sparkly purple tutu was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of stealing musical instruments and electronic equipment from a church in Allied Gardens, San Diego police said.

A neighborhood resident reported seeing the suspect place a guitar amplifier in a truck about 4:10 a.m. outside the Palisades Presbyterian Church at 6301 Birchwood Street near Waring Drive, according to police.

Officers arrived, set up a perimeter and found the suspect, identified by police as Joshua Baker, 39, allegedly carrying a trash can with property inside, police said. The man, who is roughly 6-foot and weighs about 200 pounds, dropped the property and ran northbound, between two buildings, police said.

An officer gave chase and the suspect jumped a chain link fence and headed west into the church parking lot, where another officer was waiting.

During the chase, the suspect's clothing came off and he was taken into custody in the nude, police said.

Judging from the self important stern looks of many cops they need a good laugh on occasion. The tutu was almost a public service.

Churches need to start buying gun safes for their equipment. Sad, but true.

Tough call...on the one hand, this does not seem to be an effective disguise; on the other hand, if he was seen, this may be the only thing that witnesses will remember. This phenomenon has been documented before with criminals wearing outrageous clothing.

I met a man the other day, he was dressed in a very strange way

With a great big hat with a big black brim (with a great big hat with a big black brim)

And a black stripe band (and a black stripe band)

And a pair of dark glasses on his nose (and a pair of dark glasses on his nose)

And a false mustache (and a false mustache)

And a pale pink sunshade held up high (and a pale pink sunshade held up high)

And that's not all, and that's not all

Around his ankle was a big black chain and draggin' on the chain was a big black ball.

I don’t think that’s the tutu’s fault.
