Dear Man Who Broke into GameStop: Plastic Bag Isn’t a Disguise

We have all thought about being a superhero (or in my case, being a villain) from time to time. We have probably even tried to design a costume or two. One man recently tested out a disguise when he decided to break into a GameStop in St. Marys, GA.

According to the footage from the store released on the police department’s page, the disguise was an amusing one, though not very clever. Think beginner cosplay, done the night before a convention, with little-to-no imagination used.  

Water Bottle Plastic Wrap Disguise

DID YOU EVER give any thought to what your disguise was going to be when you decided the life of crime was your bag of water? Well this guy did! And YES he used a plastic bag used to package bottle water. This puts new meaning to the term WaterHead! In all seriousness, this craftily disguised gent, decided to burglarize GameStop here in St. Marys last night. DO YOU KNOW WHO HE IS?You can help us catch him, once you stop laughing. Please give our detectives a call at our office at 912-882-4488, the non-emergency number to 911 at 912-729-1442, Crime Stopper Tip Line and remain anonymous 912-576-0565.

The St. Marys Police Department released footage of the not-so-well disguised criminal wearing the plastic bag from a case of water bottles on his head. Their Facebook post from Friday, April 13, said that the man “decided to burglarize” GameStop. There have been no details about what was taken. They also added, “You can help us catch him, once you stop laughing.”

Apparently, their first post got enough attention because now their latest post from April 17 has more information. They have released the suspect’s name, and according to the post, Kerry Hammond, Jr., a 22-year-old white male, is wanted for the burglary of GameStop and also has two active felony warrants. The police also wrote that he was last seen driving a 2006 Ford Taurus. If you are in the area or have information that could help, their office number is 912-882-4488 or you can call the Crime Stopper Tip Line and remain anonymous 912-576-0565.

If we were on Team Flash, I am sure that Cisco Ramon would have a few critiques for this man’s failed costume. Cisco would probably also have a creative name for this wannabe villain. I’m going to suggest we call him “Waterboy”. Sorry, Adam Sandler. 

What do you think? What would you call this poorly masked man? Tell us your name for him in the comments.
