The Florida site TCPalm has a scoop on an alleged thief who was caught on camera putting a chainsaw in his pants in the city of Port St. Lucie. Here is the video of the man putting the chainsaw in his pants.

The details:

The accused chainsaw crook came in Treasure Coast Lawn Equipment in the 1800 block of Southwest Bayshore Boulevard and reportedly asked for $1 worth of change, according to a police report.

He picked up a Stihl chainsaw valued at more than $600 and left, riding away on a bicycle.

Both the man and the chainsaw were later found by police. His pants are being represented by well-known attorney Alan Dershowitz.*
