San Pablo police arrested a suspected armed robber due to his “questionable choice of fashion” about 3 p.m. Saturday.
The suspect was wearing very recognizable green flannel pajama pants.
“They look like very comfortable pants, but committing an armed robbery while wearing pants like this probably isn’t the smartest thing to do,” police stated in a Facebook post.
Police did not immediately release the name of business that was victimized, but stated the suspect pictured stole some merchandise and then pulled a gun when an employee confronted him.
“Officers quickly sprung into action and flooded the area looking for this thief,” police said. “Surveillance video from the store revealed the suspect’s questionable choice of fashion, and officers immediately recalled the assailant’s name from prior contacts.”
Within minutes, officers located him and found him in possession of a pellet gun and illegal narcotics, police said. No injuries occurred during the robbery.
