PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. -- A teen was arrested at a prom in Jerome after he showed up wearing a stolen tuxedo, according to the Prescott Valley Police Department.

Sgt. Brandon Bonney said the $600 tuxedo was taken during a burglary at the Elegant Brides and Evening Wear in the 6600 block of East Second Street in Prescott Valley last week. The tuxedo was on a mannequin in the store's window, which was found broken on Friday.

Officers suspected the tuxedo may be used for a prom and learned that a local charter school was having its prom this past weekend in Jerome.

The owner of the bridal shop went to the prom and identified the suit. Kyle Terry Laderoot, 18, of Prescott Valley, was taken into custody.

Bonney said during an interview with police, Laderoot gave some conflicting statements but did not admit to involvement in the burglary.

Laderoot was booked into the Yavapai County Jail for one count of burglary and one count of criminal damage.
