Despite Head-To-Toe Camo, Man Busted For Museum Burglary
Meet Gregory Liascos.
The 36-year-old Oregon man was arrested yesterday morning for allegedly trying to burglarize a museum devoted to rocks and minerals. Liascos did this, police allege, while dressed in head-to-toe camouflage suit.
Liascos is pictured here in evidence photos taken post-arrest by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
According to deputies, a police dog discovered Liascos hiding in a wooded area near the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals, where investigators found evidence of an attempt to cut a hole into an exterior wall of the Hillsboro institution. Liascos apparently opted for the camouflage outfit--which is usually donned by hunters--to conceal his break-in bid.
Liascos was charged with burglary and criminal mischief and booked into the county lockup.
Liascos’s threads, known in hunting circles as a ghillie suit, compare favorably to other well-known green outfits, including those worn by Lady Gaga; Wrigley Field wall guy; Marjory, the matronly compost heap from Fraggle Rock; and the extras in one of the OK Go videos for “This Too Shall Pass.”
