However offensive his crimes against fashion may be, St. Louis County police officers are searching for a man who’s also believed to be committing real crimes by robbing Walgreens stores.
The man was described as wearing “jorts” during an Aug. 8 robbery in South County (Go ahead. We’ll wait while you Google what jorts are).
“This guy wears jorts and robs Walgreens stores. Contact us or the fashion police if you can identify,” one of the police agency’s tweets said.
St. Louis County Sgt. Shawn McGuire said they tweeted the second photo, from St. Louis City police, on Monday to keep his face out there for people to see — and to keep the joke going.

“He looks really recognizable, so you’d think someone would recognize who he is,” Sgt. Shawn McGuire said. “So hopefully we get something out of it.”
An advisory from St. Louis County Police Department said the man is believed to have walked up to the cash register with merchandise the evening of Aug. 8 in Walgreens, at 2700 Telegraph Road. When the cashier opened the drawer to check him out, he reportedly overpowered her and took money.
Investigators believe he targeted at least two other Walgreens in the St. Louis area.
He is described as a white man who is about 40, average height, with a medium build. He was wearing a maroon T-shirt with an eagle outstretched on the front, dark jean shorts (jorts), a white hat and a black-rimmed glasses.
