Friday, Jul 01, 2022 0

A Florida man allegedly impersonated a Walt Disney World employee in an attempt to steal a Star Wars character’s statue, according to charges filed.

David Emerson Proudfoot donned a name tag and uniform and tried to steal a Star Wars R2-D2 statue worth up to $10,000.

When questioned, a ‘confused’ Proudfoot claims he had no intention of stealing the statue, but only to wanted to highlight security lapses.

He did this because he had applied for a Disney World security job, according to the affidavit.

He hoped his actions would secure him a better paid position.

However a search of his home found ‘thousands of dollars worth of items’ from the theme park.

He faces third-degree grand theft charges.
