Suspect in Wal-Mart shoplifting says he lost bet

MILLVILLE, N.J. (AP) — Police say a man picked up for shoplifting at a southern New Jersey Wal-Mart had an unusual motive: Paying off a bet.

Fifty-eight-year-old Irwin Krakow of Millville was arrested Saturday and charged with shoplifting from a nearby store.

The alleged crime and motive were first reported by The Daily Journal of Vineland.

Police say the suspect told them he lost a wager that came with two ways to repay: stealing $50 worth of stuff from the Wal-Mart or running naked through the street.

Krakow reportedly regretted choosing shoplifting, lamenting that the fine would be less for the nudity.

He’s charged with stealing a USB card, two spoons, a nutcracker, decorative tree, and T-shirts. The items were worth about $43.
