#17 The Pants Bandit Continues to Terrorize Florida:

Investigators said a woman was robbed early Thursday morning along Seacrest Boulevard, becoming the fourth reported person robbed at gunpoint for pants in the last three months. In the first pants theft on Oct. 2, police said a red, four-door vehicle pulled up to a man on the street and a passenger in the vehicle shot him.

Police said when the victim slumped to the ground, the suspect grabbed his trousers and said, "I like these pants."
