Apparently looking different is a problem in East Cooper, South Carolina. Two teens must have known this when they hatched their plan, which The Juice has dubbed “The Spandex Chronicles.” As reported by The Post and Courier:
Two teens wearing black from head to toe drew suspicion at a local pharmacy about 3 p.m. April 20 and police were called, a report states.
All black? Head for the hills!
On the way to the pharmacy, Mount Pleasant police were told by dispatchers that the boys had left the pharmacy and were walking around the mall parking lot. Dispatchers said the boys were wearing black suits that covered them from head to toe.
Police looked for the boys but couldn’t find them, so they went to the pharmacy that had reported the teens. A woman working there was visibly nervous and told police what the boys looked like, the report says.
We got ourselves a manhunt!
Another officer had found the boys walking near another pharmacy. The teenagers said they bought the spandex black suits from an online website and that they were walking around just looking for attention. They said their parents had dropped them off.
Whew. That was a close one! What did the police do with the boys?
Police told the teenagers about the impression they had made and called their parents to pick them up.
You mean the same parents who dropped them off? Here’s the source.
