A guy caught shoplifting some unusual items in St. Paul recently told police they were for his Halloween costume. We'll let you be the judge.

Here are the details:

A 33-year-old man was stopped outside the Kmart at 245 E. Maryland Ave. on Oct. 6 at 10:10 p.m., a police incident report said. Spiral Lightninghawk had set off the security system, the report said.

Lightninghawk had been "observed selecting some Halloween black fishnet stockings, women's underwear and two DVDs," the report said. He was seen going into the men's restroom, exiting and then heading to the front checkout lanes. He passed by them without paying and left the store, the report said... While in the men's room, Lightninghawk had apparently also put on the women's panties and fishnet stockings, and his pants over them to conceal them, said Sgt. Paul Schnell, police spokesman.

"He indicated he was trying to develop his Halloween costume, but didn't have the money to buy the items," Schnell said....
