Two arrested for trying to steal underwear for Halloween costume

Nov. 2, 2009

Two men decided to upgrade their Halloween costumes by stealing designer underwear from Macy's at Mayfair Mall on Thursday.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The 18-year-olds, one from West Allis and one from Cudahy, had gone to a costume party dressed as underwear models, but their generic boxers and briefs fell flat with the crowd.

They decided some Armani underwear might make them more believable, so they took a pack of each style available in that brand.

Their plan was foiled by an anonymous tipster who called the store's security staff and warned them of the impending crime.

Both men received retail theft citations.
