They’re one of the hottest headphones out there — and I mean “hot.”

Issaquah police say this guy is one of those thieves.

He’s accused of also stealing a pair of really expensive “Bose” headphones from the best buy in Issaquah, and a “Hotspot Jetpack” device that’s used to get the internet on the go.

Detectives say there was nothing sneaky about this guy like most shoplifters.

He didn’t try hiding the goods at all — holding them in plain view as he walked right past the registers and out the doors.

If you can tell Issaquah police who this accused thief is, call an anonymous tip into:
