We've all seen crime movies where thieves carry out a big, extravagant heist and then disguise themselves in an effort to avoid getting caught.

Well, a recent heist that took place in Colorado involved a man who couldn't have gotten away with much, and his disguise, while creative, didn't work out as he'd planned.

A man who was later identified as Brandon Hoskins allegedly robbed the dollar store and fled on foot to an apartment complex located pretty much right across the street known as the Pueblo Village Apartments:

While the fact that the man chose a store that sells the cheapest items in town to rob is odd in itself, the story gets even more bizarre from here.

Colorado Dollar Store Thief Changes His Wardrobe to Fool Police

After receiving reports regarding the robbery, police were able to track down the suspect at the apartment complex in which he was found.

However, one varying report was regarding how the suspect was dressed. Police were looking for a man wearing a black hoodie and a black and red flannel shirt. While police were able to make contact with Hoskins, they found him dressed in a wig, camisole, and a brassiere. 

Despite his efforts, Hoskins wasn't able to fool the police for too long as they were able to find the pants he was wearing during the robbery and determined his identity. In fact, Hoskins admitted to his crime and was arrested for three felonies including escape, aggravated robbery, and criminal mischief.
