Moose Jaw police officers responded to a 2:30 a.m. burglar alarm at the New Board Shop at 338 Main St. N. Upon their arrival, they discovered a man standing in front of the smashed storefront window holding a dressed mannequin.
Dropping the mannequin, the man fled on foot, leading police on a chase that would end in his arrest - and our amusement. The burglar, a 27 year old male, was wearing a lady's bikini, which he had stolen from the store.
"It was a two-piece," said Moose Jaw police spokesman Cpl. Cliff Froehlich.
The bikini is being kept as evidence and the man remains in police custody. He is expected to make a first appearance in court later today. He's been charged with break and enter, theft, and poor fashion sense.
