Wired PR News – A thief attempted to steal 68 tubes of toothpaste from a supermarket in Germany before walking out. As reported by Reuters, police in the country are searching for the man, who was said to have stuffed the stolen items in his clothing.
As noted in the report, the man was caught in the act by an employee of the store, who grabbed him after he refused to stop. The toothpaste tubes subsequently fell to the floor, spilling the paste on the ground.
A spokesperson for the Rostock police is quoted in the Reuters report as remarking of a possible motive for the theft, “We don’t know if he had bad teeth.”
