A man in Warsaw, Poland has been arrested after getting caught for his unusual scheme to steal some jewelry. The assailant posed as a mannequin to commit the robbery after the store’s closing.
The Warsaw Police issued a statement on Oct. 18, but withheld when exactly the crime was conducted. However, law enforcement did disclose details on how exactly the mannequin ruse was facilitated, as reported by Insider.
The 22-year-old stood motionless for hours in the store’s window until the mall shut down for the night. During the after hours, the man roamed throughout the shopping area, stealing valuable items from the jewelry stand while on his illegal tour. The news outlet also shared photos exposed by the police of the man standing in place during the scheme. The image shows the mannequin poser dressed casually in a tan hoodie and light blue jeans, holding a shopping bag as he stands motionless in front of a Wrangler Store.
After his arrest, the undisclosed man was revealed to have a history of frequent theft. At this exact shopping center, the Polish resident was caught stealing food and designer clothing on a day prior to this most recent incident. The man was caught on camera sliding underneath a store’s nearly closed entrance shutter to attempt his crime. At another mall, the man was caught stealing money from a store’s cash registers after waiting until all have left the premises to act.
In the aftermath of his current theft attempt, security on the premises caught the fake mannequin on his after hours stroll, with the Department for Combating Crime Property finally detaining the repeat offender. The Śródmieście Police Department released the statement fully detailing how the man’s “luck finally ran out” as further punishment for his crimes are underway.
