Their clothing: California casual. Their poses: hip and youthful. Their expressions: priceless. Move over, Trendzilla, there's a new fashion columnista in town, courtesy of burglary suspects, a surveillance camera and the Garden Grove Police Department.
All three of these Real American Geniuses struck these poses for a security camera that they may or may not have known was pointed at them outside a residence they are believed to have tried to burglarize.
They even posed with their backs to a white wall--every photographer's dream. Click here for more poses and the videos.
Here's how their unwitting fashion show came to be, based on the account from Garden Grove Police Lt. Ben Stauffer, the department spokesman: Around 7 p.m. on April 20, three people knocked repeatedly on the front door of a home in town. When no one answered, the three hopped a fence into the backyard.
A hole was then cut in a screen near the handle of a French door and noises we made like someone was trying to break in that were so loud, they were heard by residents inside who started making a racket themselves to scare the would-be intruders, who fled.
What the trio outside did not know was that the residents had "a very high-quality surveillance camera system installed at their residence," and its images were shared with police investigators of the attempted burglary, according to Stauffer.
"The Garden Grove Police Department has exhausted all leads in their attempts to identify the three suspects pictured in the video and is now asking for the public's help in identifying them," Stauffer said. "It is unlikely this was their first or last attempt at burglarizing a home in Garden Grove."
... is further described as Hispanic, early 20s with short dark hair, brown eyes, hair on his chin, seen wearing a black t-shirt with a red and white flag logo with an "M" over the heart and a gold chain necklace.
With a smart double-breasted sportcoat, he could get away with this look at a local yacht club.
She is ...
... Hispanic, age 20-30, with long brown and pink hair, brown framed prescription glasses, seen in a white lace sleeveless blouse.
Notice how the blouse does not tightly hug her torso, making it the perfect top for a pizza dinner party or appearance before one's critical mother.
And the final fellow ...
... is Hispanic, early 20s with short dark hair, brown eyes, clean shaven, seen wearing a fetching black hoodie sweatshirt.
If you recognize any of these high fashion models, or especially if you know where they are holing up right now, call 714.741.5815 and ask for Investigator Danielson, who promises to have a future booking for them.
