Mark Sanchez may have some reasons to steal. The No. 6 jersey in the video and the fact his starting job might disappear could link him to a robbery, but don't worry it wasn't him.
Detectives in Indian River County, Fla., are looking for a “white male with a tan complexion” wearing a green Mark Sanchez Jets jersey, who is suspected of robbing an area video game store.
Fortunately for Sanchez, there is video evidence that shows that the suspect actually looks nothing like the injured Jets quarterback. On Thursday, the man in the No. 6 jersey robbed a GameStop 11:15 a.m. outside the Indian River Mall in Vero Beach, Fla., according to TCPalm.com (with a helmet sticker to Busted Coverage).
The suspect had a chipped tooth, and demanded cash from the employee behind the counter while showing a gun in his waistband, according to the local sheriff’s office. The faux Sanchez was able to get away with an unspecified amount of cash, merchandise and the employee’s wallet and cell phone.
Police say they are searching for a white, compact four-door vehicle that left the scene. Check out surveillance photo of the suspect below, courtesy of TCPalm.com.
