In a bizarre robbery, a man stole a semi-truck cab, crashed it into an adult shop and made off with an expensive sex toy. This is not the first time such a crime has been committed at the same store.
Crashed semi into store
Ohio police are looking for a man who stole a red Volvo semi truck cab from a local business early Monday morning. The man then crashed the truck into the back door of the Brownhelm Township Adultmart and made off with a sex toy worth $800.
One of the most expensive available
The object he took, allegedly one of the most expensive sex gadgets on the market, is described as a “life-like masturbator complete with female genitalia with legs and buttocks,” according to local new station WOIO.
Man escaped on foot
Police later spotted the man and the truck. The perp — a white male dressed in a red shirt and blue hoodie — saw the police and fled on foot down nearby railroad tracks and escaped. The stolen device was not found in the truck, and police believe the man stashed it prior to his being spotted.
It has happened before
Perhaps the strangest thing about the crime is that it has happened before — at the same store. In 2009, a man crashed his car through the back door of the the Adultmart, grabbed a $150 intimate play device and drove out again through the front door. The car did about $20,000 damage to the store.
Thief knew what he was after
Tracy Holmes, the store’s manager, speculated that the man had frequented the store in the past. The thief clearly knew what he wanted and where it was displayed. “He knew exactly where he was running,” Holmes said at the time.
The surveillance video of Monday incident has not been released because they don’t want to encourage copycats, police say. Below is a video of the 2009 robbery.
