Well, the criminal complaint quotes thirty-eight-year-old Jerry Lowery as saying he "really likes to be around glasses."
Investigators say Lowery told them he tries on the glasses in front of a mirror, then tosses them out.
Lowery took more than 500 high-end pairs of specs like Prada and Gucci, according to prosecutors.
Lowery is charged with three counts of armed robbery and one count of fleeing an officer. The charges carry a maximum penalty of more than 120 years in prison and a $310,000 fine.
Prosecutors say Lowery walked into three shops between April and July and said he had a gun. Online court records didn't list a defense attorney.
