Employees from Kohl’s Department Store on Washington Street called police on Wednesday, Sept. 4, for suspicious activity after a man left a pair of bloody jeans inside one of the fitting rooms.
Upon arrival, officers were told that a young man came into the store, went into the dressing room with a pair of jeans, changed into them and then left for the cash register to pay for the jeans. The employee from the store said the man could not stand still as if he were on some sort of narcotic, and he had a difficult time signing his name on the credit card pad.
In addition, the man also attempted to tip the cashier $40 for a $35 pair of jeans. When officers checked the jeans, there were two receipts. One of the receipts was for a $1,000 withdrawal, and the other for $300. The account had a balance of $54,000.
“Based on the male subject’s actions, the stained jeans, and the large bank account activity, this seemed highly unusual,” the officer noted in his report.
Police watched security footage of the man getting out of a car in front of the store, and getting back into the vehicle, which was waiting for him when he left. Officers filed a report and will look into the incident.Additional Incident:
