San Luis Obispo police searching for elderly thieves

March 26, 2022


The San Luis Obispo Police Department is asking for the public’s help in finding two thieves who snatched merchandise from a store on the 700 block of Hiquera Street this week.

The elderly man and woman took $2,100 in items from the clothing store, with a camera catching their thefts. The woman has a mask over her mouth, while the man’s face is fully viewable.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about the suspects to contact Officer Donovan at (805) 594-8033.

For these two, my mind hears gypsy music in the background, not Benny Goodman.

I guess they are just making up the difference from their SS increase and the rate of inflation

Brilliant. Get arrested for stealing over $995.00 worth of merchandise, then get their hip replacements and dental implants on the taxpayer’s dime.

Are you saying they are purposely trying to get arrested so that they can get dental implants and hip replacements?

Yes, sure. I think, based on not knowing these people at all, that that was their fiendishly clever plan from the start. Alternatively, it could have been sardonic humor after a couple of beers. I’ll leave it to you to decide which.
