East Side Thieves Contributing To Tucson's Obesity Epidemic

Keep an eye out in the locker room.

This is why I don't go to the gym. Well, not really, but if I needed a good excuse this would be the one I'd use.

Tucson police sent out a media release "seeking the public's assistance" to find whoever is involved in an apparent string of gym locker thefts from several large-scale membership gym clubs on the east side.

Since August there have been at least 12 instances where gym patrons — whether they were devoted workout enthusiasts or people who felt obligated to actually use the yearlong membership they paid for but didn't really want and cannot cancel no matter how hard they try — have had credit cards or keys stolen from their lockers. The credit cards were then used almost immediately at nearby stores, or items were taken from the victims' cars.

Both men and women have been targeted by the thief or thieves at two different L.A. Fitness locations, two separate Platinum Fitness spots and the Desert Fitness near Tanque Verde and Pantano, according to TPD.

A trio of not-really-helpful-but-we'll-show-you-them-anyway surveillance photos were released by TPD:
