Florida the rules are different here Chapter LXX
Pants stealing robbers are on the loose here in Palm Beach County.
Police are looking for violent, gun-toting pants thieves who are apparently roaming city streets between Seacrest Boulevard and Ninth Avenue.Note- The area in question is not far from where my son is buried. Dear wife and I will be cautious when making our twice weekly trips to Boynton.
In at least three incidents between October and mid-November, a dark-colored sedan approached people on the streets in the early-morning hours and a passenger fired a gun, Boynton Beach police said.
All three victims were injured in the attacks, and one remains hospitalized at Delray Medical Center, according to a report.
In the first incident, which happened on Oct. 2 on Seacrest Boulevard, a dark car pulled up to a man, a passenger got out and a second passenger fired at the man from the car.
When the man fell to the ground, the passenger grabbed his trousers and said, "I like these pants," according to a report. He then took the man's pants, got in the car and sped away.
In the most recent attack, which happend on Nov. 12 at about 4:45 a.m., a car drove up to a man, a passenger pointed a gun and a second passenger demanded the man's pants. When the man was slow to respond, the passenger shot him several times and fled the scene, police said.
I'm guessing the thieves don't want the pants so much as what is usually contained in a man's pants pocket. Maybe men should start putting money in their shoes(but a bad limp will give it away) in the future.
Life in Florida= It is seldom if ever boring. Rick at SOTP is also commenting.
