Gloucester Police/Fire: Customer wears clothes, unpaid for, out of store


All a Main Street store owner wants is his vintage clothing returned.

Police were called to Bananas Clothing Store at 11:45 a.m. Wednesday. An employee told officers that a man and a women entered the store and the male grabbed “several shirts and two to three pairs of pants” and went into the dressing room.

When the man, described as white with a tattoo on the back of his neck, emerged from the dressing room, he reportedly paid for two shirts and a pair of pants. The rest of the clothing he grabbed was missing.

Police searched the area and did not find the man.
