Texas Teddy Thief

JANUARY 22--A Texas lingerie enthusiast already facing a felony robbery charge was arrested yesterday and charged with swiping 21 teddies, anal beads, lubricant, and a pair of heels from an adult boutique in Houston, records show.

Police charge that Jaquan Thompson, 23, boosted the items during a grab-and-run incident Monday evening at the Katz Boutique, which advertises itself as “your premier destination for Fashion, Fantasy, & Fun!”

Seen at right, Thompson allegedly took the lingerie and other items from the checkout counter and bolted from the store with the hot merchandise, which police valued at $1100.

Thompson is also accused of stealing “one fireman pump” from the adult store, though a criminal complaint, sadly, offers no further description of that device.

Thompson was subsequently collared by Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies, who booked him into jail on a misdemeanor theft count. Some of the recovered teddies are seen in the above police photo.

Citing a “spate of recent cases,” a magistrate judge yesterday declined to set bond for Thompson, who was arrested in June 2019 on a felony robbery with bodily injury charge. During the alleged commission of that crime--for which Thompson was free on $20,000 bond--he struck the victim, cops say.

Thompson’s rap sheet includes prior convictions for criminal trespass; unauthorized use of a vehicle; evading arrest; theft; auto burglary; and criminal mischief. (2 pages)
