Just a little entry into the bizarro crime files from our friends to the south in San Diego: "A man wearing purple tights and a tutu with his genitals exposed was arrested early Wednesday on suspicion of burglarizing" a church in the Allied Gardens area, reports the Union-Tribune. Oh, adds the U-T, the suspect was also wearing a white T-Shirt. Authorities located a pickup truck near the arrest site that was loaded with electronics and other items identified as having come from the church.

The suspect was taken into custody.

While what can often compel individuals to commit crimes certainly isn't funny, the comments on the U-T article about the suspect and his quirky attire are pretty funny. "If he wears that outfit when he's out and about committing crimes I wonder what he wears when he's just lounging around the house," offers one reader.

"Glad to see that the fashion police finally caught him!" quips another.

Here's hoping the suspect gets the help he needs on all fronts.
