EAST LAMPETER TOWNSHIP, Pa. (TND) — A guy in a wheelchair wouldn’t steal, would he?

Police near Lancaster, Pa., say they’re looking for a “shoplifter impersonator” who went into the Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Outlet “seated in a wheelchair, using his feet to move around the store.”

Surveillance showed him “selecting numerous clothing items and carrying them on his lap” in the afternoon of Dec. 21.

Finally, he stood up, “placed the store merchandise on the seat of the chair, and walked out of the store, pushing the wheelchair in front of him and stealing over $830 of clothing.”
