Only In Amarillo: What In The World Is This Burglar Wearing?
Alright, I'm a bit behind on the curve here, but I did a double take when I saw this post.
Amarillo Crime Stoppers, a local page geared towards recruiting help from the public in solving area crimes, made a most about a recent burglary that occurred in the 6000 block of S. Western on July 25th.
Apparently these guys rammed into the storefront with their vehicle, then entered the building and went hog wild.
Now, I'm not so much surprised by the fact that the vehicle they used to make their grand entrance was later found to be a stolen vehicle (that would be quite the toughie to explain to your insurance company if you used your own vehicle, I imagine). I'm not even surprised by their insistence on making the grandest entrance of all time (could you be any less conspicuous? I say in my best Chandler Bing voice).
I'm definitely surprised by what the heck this guy is wearing. Is it a dog costume? Is it a reindeer hoodie? What. Is. It?
Now, I know that the cool kids like to wear something that will make them stand out. It's a reflection of their quirky nature, I guess. And I suppose this homie knew he would be on camera and wanted to make a statement, and well....we got the message. But that's awfully recognizable, don't you think?
I would like to assume that the guy (or girl, you just never know these days) ditched the outfit after the offense because that would be the only smart thing they do. But, in the event they don't.....and you happen to recognize this piece of clothing, do make a courtesy call to Amarillo Crime Stoppers at 806-374-4400. You can also submit your anonymous tip at amapolice.org or by using the P3 Tips App.
And while you're at it, please clue me in as to what the heck that thing is? Dog? Reindeer? Cow? This one will bother me.
