PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Police in Port St. Lucie are on the lookout for a cross-dressing man who snatched a 74-year-old woman’s purse. As if that weren’t odd enough, they’re depending on a strange clue. The suspect left behind a condom filled with water he had been using as a fake breast.
The woman said she believed the thief followed her while shopping. A witness told investigators he was wearing a short denim skirt and black tube top, and fled in a silver car with two other male cross dressers.
Police are processing the condom for fingerprint and DNA evidence.
Port St. Lucie is (I thought) a rather sleepy little coastal town about an hour south of here. Who knew there were at least three drag queens going around stealing ladies’ purses? Did the fellow need the purse to complete his outfit, I wonder?
