Thief to Card Shop Owner: “I’ve Gotta Go”

If you’re a thief lacking creativity but have some speed and quickness, you simply grab what you want and run.  At least that’s how it went down at Bob’s Collectors Den in Cookeville, Tennessee last week.  Cookesville Police say a man walked into the shop and ran out with a stack of Panini Momentum football cards.

According to the Herald-Citizen, a store employee told a local police officer that a man came into the shop and asked to see the cards.  After the clerk handed them over, the man told the worker he had to go, and ran out the door, carrying his ill-gotten booty.

The man was seen running into a parking lot nearby, hopping into a brown Ford Taurus and driving away.

The thief was described as being a white male about 5 ft. 8 inches tall, dressed in a brown shirt and khaki pants.
