Heard of the Mannequin Man?

Most people admire the clothes on a mannequin. Not Ronald. A. Dotson.

The Detroit 39-year-old has a history of stealing, or trying to steal, shop mannequins. On multiple occasions Dotson has been caught trying to make off with mannequins — the last one was dressed in a maid’s uniform — and has been to jail and had a psych evaluation to try and help him.

Nothing has worked and even his lawyer admits it’s “pretty bizarre”.

“He told his parole officer he was going to buy a mannequin so he didn’t have to do these break-ins anymore,” Detective Brendan Moore told Associated Press.
