Break-In Suspect Dresses As Teletubby, Allegedly Steals Chinese Food In Man Purse

The season of people dressing up in costumes and allegedly committing stupid crimes is upon us.

Pennsylvania police arrested a break-in suspect dressed in a yellow Teletubby costume over the weekend. The man, who is not identified, reportedly broke into his friend's house after a Halloween party and stole Chinese food.

A Bethlehem Police report obtained by the Smoking Gun states that the man raided the fridge, "dumped [the food] in his man purse" and fled.

Cops caught up with the dashing diner later on in the evening. His friend declined to press charges for the door he broke.

The yellow Teletubby is called Laa-Laa. She is not known to carry a purse, but her associate, Tinky Winky (the purple one) often carried one in the children's show.

Unfortunately, Tinky Winky has also been known to pack heat. A Canadian woman said she was robbed on Halloween 2009 by an armed bandit dressed in a purple Teletubby costume. He held the victim up with a handgun and took off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
