Guitar-Shaped Bulge in Pants Gives Shoplifter Away

NOVEMBER 28, 2006 - Posted at 3:28 p.m. CST

 

DE QUEEN, AR - The guitar-shaped bulge in Morgan Conaster's clothing tipped off a music store owner that there might be a crime in progress.

Clifton Lovell, owner of Guitars and Cadillacs on U.S. Highway 71 in De Queen, was conversing with a customer last week outside his store when he saw the 29-year-old Conatser walking out of the store.  Lovell noticed the 29-year-old man had bulges that indicated a guitar neck in his pants and the body in his jacket.

When confronted, Conatser returned the solid-body electric guitar.  Lovell says he didn't plan to call sheriff's deputies until he found a wireless sound system missing.

Officials say Conatser was cited for a misdemeanor for the sound system.  He wasn't charged for the guitar because he'd already given it back.
