Police arrested a serial package theft suspect who they say tried to return some purloined pumps to Jimmy Choo in Highland Park Village.Kyle Cassady, 25, told officers called to the shopping center Thursday that he was merely trying to return a pair of pricey shoes his wife had bought a day earlier.They didn't buy his story any more than the store's staff did, and investigators quickly learned that the product's serial number matched shoes that delivered by UPS and reported stolen.What's more, Cassady's silver Ford Fusion, found parked at Highland Park Village, matched the description of a getaway car used in two front-porch package thefts a day earlier.And inside the car, "in plain view," were several packages bearing many different names and addresses, police said.
