PA Man Steals High Heels From Retail Store

We were reading an interesting news article in the Intelligencer Journal / Lancaster New Era which was published on November 03, 2010. We thought we would share it and put in our own thoughts.

The night of November 1, 2010, a Lancaster, PA man grabbed a pair of women’s high-heel shoes, put them on and walked out of a Park City Center store, police allege.

Eckman, 22, picked out a pair of Elle heels — which cost $69.99 — in the Kohl’s store, then he took them inside a men’s fitting room in the shoe department, where he put them on, city police said.

He then put the shoe box in a shopping bag and left the store. He was stopped outside Kohl’s wearing the size 10 heels. His own shoes were in the shoe box inside his shopping bag, police said.

Because he has two prior retail theft convictions, Eckman was charged with felony retail theft, police said. He also was charged with giving police a false name. He was arraigned and sent to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $50,000 cash bail.

Did he not think he would draw attention wearing heels to begin with? And to try to get away running in heels? No offense intended, but yet another dumb criminal to go on the list.
