Police Blotter: Muscular Man Swipes Bubble Dresses At Warehouse Row

Monday, April 7, 2014

Police said a muscular man made off with some bubble dresses from Kayce Hughes women's and children's clothing at Warehouse Row.

The manager and an employee said a black male came inside and went to one corner. They became suspicious about what he was doing, then saw him take off with the dresses under a blue coat that was over his arm.

He was last seen heading toward Patten Towers.

Store personnel called Warehouse Row security, but it was lunchtime and they did not respond.

The suspect has yellow teeth and eyes and a mid, non-groomed fro. He looks like he works out a lot.
