FREMONT — A Toledo man stopped by the local Wal-Mart Thursday with an unusual delivery — photographs of himself wearing fishnet stockings, a women’s camisole, and “nothing in between,” according to Fremont Police Det. Sgt. Dean Bliss.
“Apparently he did it just to get a reaction,” Sergeant Bliss said.
A loss prevention specialist at Wal-Mart reacted first; Fremont police were next.
Rodney Kunkel, 44, was charged with two counts of pandering obscenity, a fifth-degree felony punishable by up to 12 months in prison and a $2,500 fine. He was being held in the Sandusky County jail Thursday after Fremont Municipal Court Michael Burkett set bond at $30,000.
Sergeant Bliss said that on Monday a loss prevention employee at Wal-Mart discovered nine such lewd photographs on shelves in the cosmetics department and on the windshields of some cars in the parking lot. By studying surveillance tape, he was able to identify the suspect’s vehicle.
Sergeant Bliss said that when the loss prevention agent arrived at work Thursday, he spotted the vehicle in the parking lot and called police.
And in Florida:
OCALA, Fla., March 5 (UPI) — Florida police said a man told an officer the two bras he stole from a Walmart store were gifts for his girlfriend to celebrate her upcoming release from jail.
Ocala police said Johnnie Brown, 29, was spotted by a Walmart loss-prevention officer Tuesday shoving two bras into his pants while riding around the store in a motorized wheelchair, the Ocala Star-Banner reported Friday.
Investigators said Brown was detained by employees when he left the store without paying for the items.
Brown allegedly told police the bras were a gift for his girlfriend, who is scheduled to be released from jail this month. Police said he had $350 in his pocket at the time of his arrest but said he couldn’t use it to purchase the items because it was rent money.
Police said the bras were worth $7 and $13.
Brown was charged with petit retail theft and released Wednesday after posting $500 bail.
Disgusting and depraved.
