WILSONVILLE, Ore. (KOIN 6) — A man reportedly seen stealing electronics and hiding them inside his kilt Wednesday was arrested Thursday for the same crime at the same Wilsonville store, law enforcement officers have confirmed.

Daniel Ducret, 37, was taken into Wilsonville Police custody Thursday on one count of second-degree theft. According to Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office deputy Dan Kraus, Ducret walked into Fry’s Electronics on Wednesday wearing the kilt.

Loss prevention staff say they spotted Ducret piling small electronics into the front pouch of the garment. When Ducret walked into the store a day later, the Wilsonville Police Department was alerted and Ducret was arrested.

More electronics, including remote control helicopters, an audio car charger and computer mouse, were found in the pouch of Ducret’s kilt, which appeared to be modified to store even more items, Kraus said Friday.

“It gives kilts a bad name,” said Jonny McLain, who owns Stumptown Kilts.

McLain said he could see how easy it would be to add pockets and have lots of access to them from underneath. However, Ducret’s advantage of additional pockets may also have been his downfall, according to Kraus.

“There was a cost to additional room to steal things is that he did stand out. I don’t think there’s a graceful way to stick stuff inside a kilt,” Kraus said.

When reached at his home in Portland, Ducret declined to comment about the incident.

He had bonded out of jail by Friday morning.
