Cops have alerted the fashion police to a robbery suspect because he is seen wearing denim shorts on CCTV.

St Louis County Police dubbed the suspect the “jorts-wearing bandit” in a post on social media and criticised his fashion sense.

The robber approached a cashier with merchandise on August 8 then overpowered her when she opened the cash drawer. The suspect is accused of targeting at least three Walgreens stores within the St Louis area.

Cops posted a second image on Twitter a few days later.

It says his “disregard for the law is as offensive as his disregard for fashion trends”.
