Wisconsin: smash and grab of blow-up dolls
When it’s been a rough day, you have to turn to a little loony levity for the evening…
Wow. You know the Bush economy is weak when sad sacks like this feel the need to steal sexual aids. < /snark >
Jose A. Sandoval, 26, led detectives to spots where he had stashed the dolls and other items he allegedly took from Naughty Novelties, 6011 Highway 51, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday in Dane County Circuit Court.
Sandoval was charged with burglary for allegedly taking such things as sex dolls, thong underwear and lotion in the Nov. 10 break-in, according to the complaint. Naughty Novelties co-owner Roger Hellenbrand told police, however, that none of the money in the store had been touched.
Using surveillance video from the shop, Dane County Sheriff’s Office detectives were able to see a large man get out of a distinctive-looking General Motors car, smash through a front door, grab items from the shop and drive off.
…Among the items that were found was a Linn Thomas talking love doll, priced at $269.99, which is shaped to resemble the porn star of the same name. According to one review by an Internet retailer, the 5-foot-3-inch doll vibrates and blurts out recorded encouragements to its user.
