Shoplifting Suspect Wearing ‘Won’t Be Caught’ T-Shirt Remains At Large

mightbecaughtThe Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Florida want to make sure that the prediction made on a woman’s t-shirt doesn’t come true. The message in huge white letters on her black t-shirt was clear: “Won’t Be Caught,” it said. Unfortunately, she was caught on camera while allegedly scooping up almost $1,500 worth of perfume and cologne bottle at an Ulta store in Tampa.

It’s not always nice or legal to profile customers in your store by their appearance, but should a shirt with a message like this invite special scrutiny? This shirt is vague enough that it could be the name of a song or another slogan, but should you follow someone around if they wear a shirt that literally says, “I Love Shoplifting”?

The crime took place six weeks ago, but the sheriff’s office released these photos the public just now, hoping to find the overconfident shoplifting suspect. If you have any information that could be helpful, contact Crimestoppers of Tampa Bay. If you know where to find one of these t-shirts, please keep that information to yourself.
