MOBILE, Alabama - A shoplifter is caught by police, but not before he is caught by his dreadlocks.

Mobile police say Gregory York stuffed steaks and several other items in his pants and tried to walk out of the Greer's Food Tiger on Broad Street Tuesday afternoon. The manager grabbed York by his shirt and dreadlocks. Some of the merchandise fell out of York's pants. But he got away with at least two packs of steaks.

Earlier this week I posted a story of a killer tripping over his baggy pants and falling to his death. This is almost as good.

Did you hear the one about the naked streaker in the church?

They caught him by the organ.

It seems that many thugs embrace fashion choices (baggy pants, untied shoes, dreadlocks, etc.) that hinder the criminal behavior they engage in.

When I saw the title of the thread, the first thing I thought of was the “that’s racist” graphic. LOL

Somehow I just don’t see a really clever, intelligent guy thinking that stealing food from a store is a bright thing to do.

So, I guess the other poor choices are just side effects of the intelligence and wisdom that these guys are showing to start with.

Referring back to the post of the baggy pants dirtbag dying, brought to mind the description of the three perps in the Mall robbery last week, black hoodies, jeans, and description of two of the perps underware!

Can you post a link? I love a good comedy. Too bad it wasn't attempted killer, instead of killer.

When I was a kid on my first job as a grocery bagger at a mom/pop store I saw a guy shoplifting meat and told my manager who was all of 4’11” tall.

When the shoplifter, who was at least 6’3”, tried to exit the store she blocked his way and told him to “hand it over”.

I don’t know if the guy was startled to have gotten caught or shocked such a little lady would be so bold, but he forked it over and she stepped out of his way and let him go.

An old police tactic for controlling bad guys was to grab them by the hair with one hand and place the billy club between their legs and march them off to the brig. It works pretty well, but isn’t used much anymore.

You realize that dreadlocks are also common to whites and are even more hideous, right?

I don’t know if the Vicar in Yorkshire would approve of this crime or not. It wasn’t a big business after all. He’s probably not very displeased though:

Not that common, but yes, I’ve seen a few, and yes, it’s pretty hideous.
