Man poses as mannequin in storefront, goes on shopping spree after mall closes

An alleged thief found a clever way to hide from authorities in Poland — posing in a store window as a mannequin.

“A 22-year-old with a bag in his hand froze motionless, pretending to be a mannequin in front of a shop window,” police said in a translated statement.

“In this way, he wanted to avoid being exposed by the cameras.”

He was arrested and police said that he could face up to 10 years in prison.
