"Captain America" Caught Trying To Burglarize Mississippi Property, Cops Report

A man wearing a Captain America costume was arrested for burglary after a Mississippi homeowner caught the phony superhero breaking into a shed on his property, cops report.

David Hobbs, 36, was collared early Monday morning as he allegedly tried to use a pipe to break into a shed at the rear of a residence in the city of Clarksdale.

Hobbs was thwarted when an alarm alerted the homeowner to the attempted 3 AM burglary. The victim held Hobbs at gunpoint until police arrived.

For some unknown reason, Hobbs was wearing a Captain America costume, complete with mask. His outfit also included fairy wings, apparently for a quick getaway.

Hobbs, sans costume, is locked up in the Coahoma County jail on $25,000 bond. As seen above, Clarksdale cops photographed the handcuffed Hobbs while he sat on a bench in police headquarters.
