Yes, shoplifters will be prosecuted. And so will folks who treat merchandise like this … As reported by The Brooklyn Paper:
A 32-year-old urinated all over costly clothing inside a Downtown department store on Dec. 11, investigators claim.
Police cuffed a suspect accused of ruining more than $1,500 of garb inside the Fulton Mall shop between Gallatin Place and Hoyt Street at around 9:48 pm.
The suspect — who faces charges of criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, exposure, and “throwing or dropping offensive matters into streets and public places” — admitted to relieving himself on the clothing, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
