You would not call him the most health conscious shoplifter Omaha has ever seen.
Julius D. Fisher-Suggs is not a connoisseur of fine cheeses and first-rate meats.
He likes junk.
His first problem was that he picked the wrong time to walk out of a convenience store on Nov. 7 with stolen goods. At that moment, Vaughn Cotton and James Kinsella were walking in. And they are police officers.
At first glance, Fisher-Suggs, 22, had two bags of potato chips stuffed under his coat and in a coat pocket.
The officers stopped him at the doors of the QuikTrip near 47th and Hamilton Streets.
“That's all I got,” he said.
But the bag belied the sugary, salty truth.
At that moment, a bag of Chester's Flamin' Hot Fries fell out from under his coat, police said.
And like the clowns that keep coming out of the car at the circus, the bags of stolen snacks poured forth.
There were peanuts and Bugles, devil's food cakes and candy bars, a jumbo glazed honey bun.
In all, 11 treats were found stuffed in the pockets of his coat and pants — none paid for, police said.
One item that Cotton and Kinsella say they found that had not been shoplifted — and which may explain the need for all those snacks — was a small amount of marijuana.
Fisher-Suggs was ticketed on suspicion of shoplifting and marijuana possession.
