A burglary suspect dubbed "The Man of Steal" by local media was busted Tuesday by Philly police after his fashion choices made him easy to ID, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Kyree Henneghan, 18, was nabbed trying to sell a stolen laptop from his BMX bike (his alleged getaway vehicle) and tied to two home break-ins this week and last. Henneghan's outfit of choice during both thefts, which he admitted committing to police: a Superman shirt and red Chuck Taylor sneakers. He was charged with two counts of burglary and other related offenses. The moral: "Don't steal and don't ride your BMX bike with your red Chuck sneakers and blue Superman shirt," a police superintendent tells the paper. (How to one-up that crime: Get arrested in a Superman shirt when your name is Christopher Reeves.)
