In one of the more bizarre and seemingly unnecessary crimes of the year, a man was caught on surveillance video stealing an elderly woman's cane at a Dunkin' Donuts location in Portland.

According to the Portland Press Herald, the Portland Police Department went to Facebook in hopes of finding the identity of a man they claimed walked off in plain daylight with the cane belonging to a 75-year old woman who was a patron at Dunkin' Donuts. The elderly woman was placing her order at the counter when the man began walking off with her cane.

The Portland Police Department updated their post and thanked the public for their help this morning in helping to identify the suspect. They say charges are being prepared the suspect.

A fair question may be, what in the world did this guy want with a 75-year old woman's cane?
