Wichita store robbed of hundreds of adult videos

October 13, 2011


— Police in Wichita are searching for a robber who stole hundreds of videos from an adult store.

KAKE-TV reports the holdup at Circle Cinema happened shortly before 7 a.m. Wednesday. Police say the man walked in with a gun and a knife and ordered the clerk to hand over cash and videos.

The man ran out with about 600 adult videos as well as cash. No one was hurt.

The suspect was last seen wearing a tan baseball cap, blue jacket and blue pants.

Police urge everyone to be on the lookout for a man who smells like Jergens and has 3rd degree burns on at least one hand…

Blue pants and blue jacket could be a cop uniform??

Wonder what he used to carry 600 porn videos. Sounds like a big load though guess he is a handy fellow

I was thinking the same thing.

What do you do with 600 porn videos? There's like 100 times that many on the internet. Why would you steal them? Why would you buy them?

I bet they were the store's entire inventory of VHS adult videos. Probably valued at like $30 apiece too.

As for carrying 600 porn videos...from what I hear, adult video stores will remove the actual disks from the DVD cases, then store them behind the counter in disc wallets. Some of those wallets will hold 300+ disks. In theory, he could have run out with all of the disks, the knife, and the gun, and still had one hand free...

I wonder if it was someone trying to remove smut from the neighborhood.

Probably will be selling them on a street corner by the local middle schools.

I'm pathetic for posting in this thread.

Back in the OLDEN days, he would have had to run with 600 VHS tapes. This would have slowed him to the point that the POlice could catch him easily. All this newfangled technology just makes crime easier. :-)

Probably some right wing god-knobber who didn't want to be seen renting them and now has a collection that should last him a while.

I thought all the porn shops in Wichita were shut down by the Christians?

If my ex-husband had access to a vehicle, I'd offer him up as the suspect.

It would be karmic justice to have every one of those videos to be gay porn.

It was probably a senator, congressman or some other kind of political figure.

I heard that the culprit is a well-known guy in Wichita who runs a bait shop.

He's been in business so long that he's earned the title of Master Baiter.

Being it was in Wichita, I'd bet the "robber" was a repressed right-wing Rebub. fundamentalist Christian who was trying to find out the "way of the Lord". Probably too uptight to go into store to rent the flicks!

BR: It is interesting that porn use tends to be higher in the Red states and that many 'men of god' struggle with this addiction, often watching the stuff in their church offices. or--" “Eight of the top 10 pornography consuming states gave their electoral votes to John McCain in last year’s presidential election – Florida and Hawaii were the exceptions. While six out of the lowest 10 favoured Barack Obama.”
