Stealing from shops by stuffing things in pockets is easy for thieves, but stealing guitars by stuffing them down your pants? Now that takes skillz:
Authorities say two men entered the Spencer's Music Store at 1717 S. Mur-Len Rd. in Olathe about 2:30 p.m. April 12. One suspect distracted the salesperson while the other suspect placed a guitar down his pants, then left the store.
Jeff Tice, Spencer's owner, said he noticed the guitar had been stolen.
"I looked up and saw an empty spot on the wall and no one was playing it in the store. So I realized it was not in the store," Tice said.
He checked his surveillance video and discovered the thieves stole two guitars worth more than $5,000.
"You can't make that up," Tice said. "It's huge."
