Police seek man who walks like a penguin in heist

  • Follow Crime & courts

OAKWOOD, Ga. — Police probing the theft of more than $30,000 in jewelry from a northeast Georgia antiques store are searching for a suspect described as a short man who walks like a penguin.

Oakwood police Investigator Danny Sridej said the man was recently captured on video wandering around Aardvark Antiques with his hands in his pocket for about an hour.

Authorities say he waddled toward the back of the building and unlocked the latch on a roll-up door. They say the same man returned the next night on March 9, entering through the roll-up door to snatch the jewelry.

Store owner Charles Pharr tells The Times of Gainesville that he’s offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

He returned the NEXT day and

He returned the NEXT night and entered through the roll up door. That means that it was unlatched for at least 24 hours. Mr. Pharr, you should put this on your list of things to do at the end of every business day upon closing the store and BEFORE leaving for the evening:
Step 1: Check the latch on the roll up door

Ever see Fred Russell walk

Ever see Fred Russell walk around at Commission meetings? With that white shirt and tie and the way he walked, he looked just like a penguin.
