Gang of Drag Queens Robs Florida Fabric Stores
Central Florida is in the midst of a drag queen crime spree epidemic. A gang of men in dresses, makeup and wigs is wanted for the theft of thousands of dollars worth of drag essentials like feather boas, sequins, butt pads, false eyelashes, and expensive fabrics from a number of Florida fabric and craft stores.
Ohnotheydidn’t! (Oh yes they did, girl.)
“They’d come in and order yards of fabric at up to $39.99 a yard, stuff it in their man purses and leave without paying,” Marshall said. “Oh, gosh, they could wipe out a whole section of boas in seconds…”
A man wearing a tank top and multi-color tights was spotted putting these items in a handbag: Five packs of black feathers, two packs of red feathers, two packs of red lace gloves, two packs of black red lace gloves, eyelashes, five bra pads, five butt pads, five gel inserts as well as three handbags, two boas, three pairs of costume glasses and 10 bandanas.
When confronted, some of the suspects handed over merchandise to the staff while others bolted through the front door.
One of them, Demitri Marsh, 19, swore at a clerk and threatened to cut her before fleeing, reports state.
Marsh, Renford Patterson, 18, and Antonio Webb, 22 are each being charged with felony retail theft of merchandise worth more than $300. Sorry, ladies!
