Burglars wore watermelons on their heads while robbing convenience store: Cops

One of two people who allegedly wore watermelons on their heads while stealing from a Virginia convenience store earlier this month was arrested on Friday.

Louisa police Chief Tom Leary confirmed to CNN that they’re still seeking the second suspect. Police said the arrested party, Justin Roger, 20, was charged with wearing a mask in public while committing larceny, underage possession of alcohol, and petit larceny of alcohol.

On May 5, the two suspects were reportedly filmed taking items from a Sheetz store in Louisa. Police said that during the heist, they wore carved-out watermelons with holes cut out for their eyes.
