“Speedo Bandit Busted “

Source: Anerican Police Beat — Oct. 2009 Issue

First there was the bikini bandit. Now there’s a guy in custody charged with attempting auto theft while wearing a Speedo.

The robbery suspect, wearing only a Speedo-style swimsuit (popularly referred to as something that ryhmes with “but-huggers”) was arrested in East Hartford after a police dog tracked him down and bit him on the leg.

The Journal Inquirer of Manchester reported that the suspect was being held on $50,000 bail.

Police who responded to the report of the suspicious person said the suspect tried to steal several vehicles, and also took items from the vehicles.

They said they spotted the man wearing the skimpy bathing suit and holding a tool box that had been burglarized from a truck. Speedo-man ran, but the police dog was on him in a flash.

The 18-year-old suspect allegedly told police he’d been drinking heavily and smoking marijuana before the scantily-clad crime spree.
