23-Year-Old Man on the Run For Stealing Cutout of Justin Bieber

You can’t really blame 23-year-old David Dowling for skipping his pretrial hearing on charges of stealing a life-size cut out of Justin Bieber.

The adult (nope, not a teenage girl) was arrested back in August after a mall security guard saw him hiding in the bushes with the $34.99 full-size cardboard Bieber, which was reported stolen.

Discussing such an embarrassing crime in a formal setting has to be the height of humiliation, but that’s not an excuse in the eyes of the law. Now there is a failure to appear warrant out for Dowling, making his sad situation even worse.

The thief remains at large, and hopefully far away from the real Bieber. Lord knows what he’d do to kidnap the real one.
