Whitening strips thief graduates — to hair care products
Newton Police responded to the Walgreens on Washington Street Sunday after an employee reported that a man had nearly cleaned out all the Nexxus hair products in the store. According to reports, the male suspect was only in the store for about 90 seconds before he stole an entire shelf of said hair care products. The employee, who viewed the incident on security tapes, said the same man reportedly had come into the store four of five times recently, previously stealing Crest White Strips. After spotting the alleged thief in the store the employee said she walked over to the man, who proceeded to yell at her and walk out of the store. The employee then went over to the section where the man was standing and noticed that almost all of the Nexxus hair products were gone: http://patch.com/A-wylt
