The New York City Police Department is searching for two thieves who robbed a high-end store on the Lower East side late last week. Instead of the usual tall, black male in a hoodie description of the perp, the police are said to be looking for a man resembling Jamie Foxx’s character “Wanda” from the show, “In Living Color.”
Apparently the two men dressed in women’s clothing before raiding the A. Turen boutique. One half of the duo is a 6-foot-2 black man, 200 pounds, in his mid-40s who wore a tight-fitting orange dress and gray wig; the other suspect is as a 5-9 black man, also in his mid-40s, who wore a snake-skin print coat and black wig. (Fab-u-lous!)
Footage from a surveillance camera shows the men went to try on Kimberly Ovitz spandex leggings in extra small before they went to the dressing rooms and grabbed two collectable bags.
Store owner Ashley Turen told CBS, “They were two vintage, hand-painted Chanel bags that I happened to paint myself, and you can’t get them again.” The bags were the most expensive items in the store, valued at $3,000 each.
