Best local crime story: The Gabber’s ‘Vibrator Theft Shakes Up Gulfport’

The Gabber’s ‘Vibrator Theft Shakes Up Gulfport’

Gulfport Pride got off to an exciting start when a bucket of vibrators intended for the event went missing from Salty’s Gulfport bar Monday, May 17. Upon checking camera footage, Salty’s owner JP Brewer saw a woman slip the sex toys into her (pause for effect) purse before walking off with them. Committing a weird Florida crime on camera isn’t the best route to getting your picture in the paper. Abby Baker’s breaking story in the Gabber taught Tampa Bay an important lesson: Thou shalt never steal a bucket of sex toys on camera.
