A thief with an apparent serious need for stylish jeans didn’t let bad weather stop him.
If sub-zero temperatures, up to 10 inches of snow and icy streets weren’t bad enough for business, a thief, or thieves, stole 150 pair of designer jeans from Isabella. The jeans were worth a total of $44,700, a police report said.
Police spokeswoman Glynda Chu said this was a case of someone taking advantage of the snowstorm to break into the business.
“While everyone was getting ready for the storm, he was busy stealing thousands of dollars in merchandise from this small business,” Chu said.
Jeans were the only items taken from the store, police said. No cash was missing.
The thief cleared out the women’s premium denim collection, Rosenwald said. True Reason, one of the brands of jeans taken, retail sfor $189-$315, the store manager said.
The store has insurance, but it will not cover all of the loss, she said.
