Remember how beautiful the weather was Saturday? Gorgeous sunshine and 85° at Midway.
So, a manager and a security guard became suspicious when two men walked into Footlocker, 4715 South Ashland, wearing ski masks and hoodies that afternoon.
The overdressed duo walked directly to the back of the store and each took out a black garbage bag. They filled the bags with underwear from the shelves and walked out the door, Assistant State’s Attorney Annalee McGlone said.
Moments later, cops on patrol became suspicious when they saw two men wearing ski masks and hoodies running down the street with large garbage bags n 85° weather, according to McGlone. They stopped the men, identified as Robert Doyle, 28, and Kiwon Doyle, 22.
Police found 67 pairs of underwear valued at $1,852 in the trash bags, McGlone said. (It’s $27.64 a pair, if you’re wondering.)
Prosecutors charged the Doyles with one count of felony retail theft each.
Judge Charles Beach set their bail at $6,000. They each had to post $600 deposits to go home.
