Fashion crime: Ex-inmate spotted at mall in jail jumpsuit

September 17, 2018

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — In between New York and London’s fashion weeks, North Carolina made its own ripples in the world of fashion — specifically, jumpsuits.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports a video of a man clad in an orange jumpsuit stamped “Forsyth County Detention Center” at a mall spread this weekend. Chief Deputy Brad Stanley clarified that the man was not an escape or currently wanted.

But it turns out that 57-year-old Mustapha Khallid Muhammad is an outfit repeater. He was jailed last year for failure to appear and comply, and should’ve surrendered the jumpsuit when released Dec. 13.

Stanley says it’s unclear whether Muhammad took the jumpsuit or had one made for himself, but for now, he’s wanted for possession of stolen property. The newspaper didn’t include comment from him.
