Don't call him Lucky.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Wenatchee police arrested a 47-year-old Tacoma man for investigation of first-degree theft after he ran out of gas as he was leaving a store where Native American collectibles were stolen.

Alerted to the thefts by the store owner, police found the man on foot Wednesday after his car stalled about 50 feet from its original parking spot.

Sgt. John Kruse said the man is suspected of stealing several Indian collectibles from the Discount Center.

Kruse says he was also in possession of several necklaces stolen from the Antique Mall — and is suspected of stealing a beaded Native American ceremonial garment bearing a price tag of $10,500.

Police are calling him the "Bad Luck Bandit".
