Hoodies stolen from Hutchinson J.C. Penney

McLEOD COUNTY, MN – Police are looking for a suspect accused of stealing about 20 Nike hoodies with an estimated value of $1,100 from J.C. Penney in Hutchinson just after 6 p.m. Dec. 8, KDUZ reported.

Store officials say a male, about 5’8” tall, with a shaved blonde head put the hoodies in a bag, left the store, and then drove off in a silver 2000 Chrysler 300. The license plate identified the owner as living in Minneapolis. However, when Minneapolis Police followed up, they said the owner no longer lived at that address. Authorities tracked down a relative of the suspect living in Arden Hills, who told Minneapolis police that the car had been sold to an unknown person for drug money. The investigation continues.
