Meanwhile, In Arlington...

Police are looking for a a 6′2″ transsexual who ran from a South Arlington beauty store with a pilfered wig, hopped into a car and sped off onto Columbia Pike.

Usman Minayar, manager of the Crystal Beauty store on South Edgewood Street, said the suspect tried to stealthily put the $17 ten inch honey blond wig in a purse while her friend, a local stripper, distracted him.

When Minayar saw what was going on, the suspect made a mad dash for the door. He didn’t try to stop her.

“I was a bit scared… [s]he’s a big guy… [s]he might knock me down, you know.”

The suspect was wearing a black shirt, a bandana and “booty shorts” at the time of the theft, Minayar said.

He said he’s confused by the theft because both the transsexual woman and the stripper, a biological female, have bought items at the store before.

I've been secretly hoping, nay PRAYING, for a tranny crime wave.

Too bad [s]he doesn't live in San Francisco. I think we have a municipal assistance program to provide free hair hats to underprivileged trannies.

As a lesbian, I have no idea what a wig cap is. And I watch Rupaul's Drag Race!
