Cops: Suspect's Distinctive "Man Bun" Helps Lead To Grand Theft Arrest
An accused thief’s distinctive “man bun” helped lead to his apprehension in connection with the swiping of video surveillance cameras from a Florida business, according to a court filing.
Police charge that Landon Hall, 26, last week stole four video cameras from the Villa Laundromat in St. Petersburg. Hall allegedly removed the cameras from their mounts while concealing his face with a “yellow colored pocket square” and a shirt.
Hall’s efforts to hide his face were not successful, according to a sheriff’s deputy who noted that, “The defendant also had a very distinct ‘man bun.’”
Seen above, Hall was identified by a cop with whom the suspect had multiple prior contacts. Hall was collared Sunday afternoon for grand theft. He is locked up in lieu of $2000 bond on the felony charge.
Hall’s lengthy rap sheet includes busts for trespassing; retail theft; narcotics possession; robbery; loitering; credit card fraud; burglary; and possession of drug paraphernalia. Prior mug shots indicate that Hall’s “man bun” is a recent tonsorial touch.
