Cops get laughs at saggy-pants crooks

UPI News Service, 06/21/2006 

Police in the United States say it's hard for fashionable crooks to maintain their look, dignity and pace while trying to escape the law in ultra-baggy jeans.

While ultra-baggy jeans maintain their popularity among the young, police across the United States are having fun watching young crooks try to run away.

Lt. Jim Matheny of the Stamford, Conn., police department told ABC News the pants are a terrific crime-fighting tool that youth haven't figured out yet.

"They spend all day thinking of ways to beat the police and then they go and put these pants on," he said. "It's hilarious to me if you think about it."

In Hendersonville, N.C., a robber who tried to hop a fence was nabbed after his droopy jeans snagged on a post, and he was arrested while dangling upside down.

The Wall Street Journal reported a DVD thief in Ferndale, Mich., might have gotten away, but as he bolted from police, his pants slipped beneath his hips. He tripped, fell and was arrested.
