“Take Me to Court” Police Ask Public’s Help to Identify Brazen Thief
“Take me to court.” Those were the words spoken by a brazen thief as he exited a Germantown 7-Eleven with stolen items in his vest.
Police are asking the public’s help to identify the thief who can be seen on store surveillance video smiling and laughing as he shoves items into his jacket as if he was untouchable and he was playing a game.
On Friday, April 15, 5th District officers responded to the 7-Eleven store located at 13001 Wisteria Drive for the report of a theft that occurred.
Police said the investigation revealed that at approximately 12:15 am, the male suspect entered the store and concealed items in his vest. The suspect walked out of the store without paying for the items and as he left, stated to the store employee, “Take me to court.”
