Police say a man picked up for shoplifting at a southern New Jersey Walmart had an unusual motive: Paying off a bet.
Fifty-eight-year-old Irwin Krakow of Millville was arrested Saturday and charged with shoplifting from a nearby store.
The alleged crime and motive were first reported by The Daily Journal of Vineland.
Police say the suspect them he lost a wager that came with two ways to repay: stealing $50 worth of stuff from the Walmart or running naked through the street.
Krakow reportedly regretted choosing shoplifting, lamenting that the fine would be less for the nudity.
He's charged with stealing a USB card, two spoons, a nutcracker, decorative tree, and T-shirts. The items were worth about $43.
