Man Steals from Wal-Mart to Impress a Woman

Fellas, take note: If you want to get the girl of your dreams, don’t do what this guy did.

Bradenton Herald reports a man named James Flenniken was arrested for shoplifting $80 worth of wine, beer and steaks from a Florida Wal-Mart. A loss prevention officer at the store caught him and called the police. When the authorities showed up, Flenniken openly admitted his motives were “to impress a lady.”

We wonder who the lucky gal that caught Flenniken’s eye is, but we’re pretty sure she probably will not be getting gussied up for a date with the 48-year-old anytime soon. He’s currently being held at the Manatee County jail on petty theft charges without bond.

Ah, love – what a beautiful thing.
