Police Arrest Shoplifting Drag Queens

September 20, 2011 by  

ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 20 (UPI) — Police in Florida said they arrested three men in a group of four accused of dressing like women and shoplifting from multiple fabric stores.

Amanda Marshall, manager of Jo-Ann Fabrics on East Colonial Drive in Orlando, said workers at her store recognized the three wig-clad men who came into the store Sunday afternoon as the same men connected with previous thefts at the store and called police, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Tuesday.

“It’s a whole gang of drag queens,” Marshall said. “They were real upset when the police made them take their wigs off.”

One of the men fled and officers arrested Demitri Marsh, 19, Renford Patterson, 18, and Antonio Webb, 22, on felony charges of retail theft of merchandise worth more than $300.

“They’d come in and order yards of fabric at up to $39.99 a yard, stuff it in their man purses and leave without paying,” Marshall said. “Oh, gosh, they could wipe out a whole section of boas in seconds.”

The men are suspected of shoplifting at other area stores, including the Sewing Studio Fabric Superstore in Maitland.
