Jerry Lowery may need glasses -- to read the fine print on his criminal charges.

He's accused of stealing more than $45,000 worth of eyeglasses from suburban Milwaukee stores.


Well, the criminal complaint quotes 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.

Prosecutors accuse him of taking more than 500 high-end pairs of specs like Prada and Gucci brands.

Lowery now faces a number of serious charges, including multiple counts of armed robbery.
