Teen Boys Dress as Women to Steal from Club Members

Paul Steinbach Headshot

Locker room thefts are not a new concern for club owners, but the lengths to which two teenage boys went to gain locker room access at several Atlanta-area health clubs is unusual.

According to WXIA-TV, the individuals posed as women looking to join each club, then used a lock-picking tool called a "bump key" to open lockers and take members' car keys, credit cards and cash.

Police reports show two Planet Fitness locations, two LA Fitness locations and a Gold's Gym were all targeted. Police are currently searching for suspects Tarquinnious Mack, 17, and Dequavis Smith, 18.
