Episode 43: Gellies Local 416
Thieving Threesome Nabbed
(California) Three men were detained and arrested at a local Target today, charged with the attempted theft of over $400 in merchandise. The men refused to identify themselves, giving only their local club affiliation: Gellies Local 416.
“This wasn’t your normal grab-and-go,” said Target assistant manager Charles Monjohnson. “Like what they were wearing: fezzes, vests, and some kind of extremely roomy jumpsuit.”
Also strange, he said, were the items they attempted to steal. A partial list:
• King James bible
• Cap gun caps
• 60 Minutes box set
• Mossimo Hyper-jacket
• 6 loaves of Wonder bread
• Wine glasses
• A Tivo
• 42 bottles of Beano
One witness, who asked not to be identified, had an up-close view of the incident: “I don’t know how they thought they’d get out of there with all that stuff,” she said. “Sure, they tried to cram some of it into their jumpsuits, but it was just spilling out of their clothes. They walked past the security guard just as nonchalant as can be, making eye contact, smiling and nodding as if they had nothing to hide. And if the store alarm hadn’t gone off, they might have gotten away with it, too.”
The three say they were obtaining supplies for their group’s annual “Doin’ It for the Kids” celebration, in which pediatric burn victims compete in a series of events for the coveted “Gelly” award.
Sources inside the group revealed that the Gellies Local 416 chapter has been struggling financially for years.
