With many stores and states requiring it, people are willing to use anything for a mask when they go shopping. Scarves, socks, sweatshirt sleeves, grocery bags; and that's just what I saw at Walmart last time I went. This guy fit right in during these uncertain times, until his behavior was different than the average shopper.

On Cinco de Mayo, two suspects walked into a Sheetz convenience store in Louisa, VA. wearing hollowed out watermelons on their head, and stole some liquor.

Only one suspect has been arrested as of this weekend; Justin Rogers, a 20 year old. He's being hit with a few charges:

  • Wearing a Mask in Public While Committing Larceny
  • Underage Possession of Alcohol
  • Petit Larceny of Alcohol

Police are still trying to identify Rogers partner-in-crime.

Candice Wendt, who witnessed the incident had a few words about the matter.

I think it’s ridiculous. Innovative but ridiculous. The amount of work that you have to do to actually hollow-out a watermelon to stick it on your head, I think, is kind of crazy. Why? Why would they do that? It's so stupid.
