PORTLAND, Ore. — A young man nicknamed “DJ Gucci Thief” by Portland police has been arrested on theft charges.

Sgt. Pete Simpson said Monday that 21-year-old Kyle Rodgers was taken into custody by police in Lake Oswego.

Police dubbed the suspect “DJ Gucci Thief” after high-end, Gucci sunglasses were stolen by a man who claimed to be wealthy rapper.

Tips poured in almost immediately after surveillance images were shown to the public. After identifying Rodgers, detectives learned he was also suspected of stealing an expensive camera from a store in downtown Portland.
