Thief Takes Shirt off Mannequin's Back

The unknown thief undressed a mannequin in the middle of the day on Main Street in Doylestown.

The mannequin that stands near the steps leading down to Chelsea Clothing and Gifts always displays a stylish outfit, enticing would-be shoppers into the Doylestown boutique.

One "shopper" recently liked the look - but made off without paying for it.

Someone took a complete outfit that had clothed the mannequin, right down to the accessories.

The theft occurred on Wednesday, Nov. 28 sometime between 2 p.m. and 3:40 p.m., according to Doylestown Borough police.

Police Chief Jim Donnelly said it's possible the thief removed the clothes, then walked down the steps toward the shop for a few minutes before leaving the area. Passers by could have thought the person was a store employee changing the display, he said.

Missing were a light-colored pair of jeans, a striped sweater, and even the corduroy bag that completed the look. The missing items are valued at about $130, according to the police report.

Chelsea is at 18 N. Main Street.

I love Chelsea's! It is hard enough for small business owners to keep up. What a shame!

And I think this may have just happened again to her.
