A Chicago Black Lives Matter looter was nabbed this week after he tried to sell an undercover Chicago Police officer a $2,700 sweater looted from a trashed high-end store.
Melvin Banks had his account closed by the Chicago police after he was caught with the stolen merch.
This dope didn’t just unsuspectingly slide up next to a Chicago cop and whisper, “psst, wanna buy a Brunello Cucinelli sweater cheap?”
Oh, no. This fool actually advertised his stolen merch on the Internet for all to see… including the police.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, CPD officers gave the 29-year-old thief a call to negotiate a price for the sweater.
Officers settled on the price of $800 for the garment that lists for nearly 3 grand. Then they went to pick up the sweater and Melvin both!
“I don’t know how a $2,000 sweater feels, but it must be immaculate, and feels very, very soft, I’m certain. But that’s a little too rich for my blood,” Cook County Judge John Lyke Jr. quipped on Wednesday evening during the crook’s arraignment.
Banks tried to claim that someone else gave him the sweater for free and that he didn’t loot anything.
The suspect was charged and held on a $2,000 bond, but was also looking at other charges in connection with a separate incident for which he was already out on bond.
The CPD is slowly scooping up looters who are caught trying to sell their stolen merch. But, it is likely that the crooked prosecutor’s officer will just let them all go.
