Cops Search for Crook Who Robbed Store While On a Hoverboard: Police
It’s the most futuristic getaway yet.
A man snatched an entire case of a sports drink from a British supermarket and made it out of the store without being caught — all while riding a hoverboard.
The man was captured on surveillance tape entering The Co-Op in Mitcham, London on the board at about 9:45 p.m. local time on September 6 before grabbing a case of Lucozade from an aisle, police said.
The crafty crook, wearing a grey sweatshirt and sweatpants, can be seen on the CCTV footage checking behind him before gunning it out of the shop and down the street.
Metropolitan Police released footage of the robbery in an effort to track down the suspect.
“Police are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the man captured in the footage,” police said in a release.
