Stormtroopers trying to break into cars in Centennial? May the Force not be with them!
Plenty of thieves have active fantasy lives. Remember the guy who robbed a 7-Eleven using a Klingon battle weapon called a bat'leth? Or the teen who reportedly deployed a sword to steal Oxycontin? But alleged lawbreakers in Centennial recently took things to the next level, disguising themselves as Star Wars-style stormtroopers.
That's the word from Fox31, which showcased security-camera footage from Centennial homeowner Jim Regas depicting a pair of stormtrooper wannabes trying to break into his car. Their vehicles of choice? Not an Imperial landing craft, but a couple of bicycles. Although the accused scofflaws didn't manage to swipe anything from Regas's ride, he tells Fox31 that one of his neighbors had some Christmas presents vanish in a suspicious manner. Is the Empire planning a war on holidays? Could Valentine's Day be next? Watch the report below and decide for yourself.
