Alcoholic drinks hairspray at Wal-Mart, returns bottle to shelf

A man was arrested for shoplifting two bottles of White Rain Hair Spray, which he drank in the Wal-Mart according to an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office report.

The store’s loss prevention officer, Christopher White, told a deputy that he had been watching the man for a few weeks to try and catch him drinking hairspray. It had been reported to White that whenever the man came into the store, employees would find empty bottles of hairspray on the shelves.

On Friday, White watched the man remove a bottle of hair spray and take it to the garden center. He then watched while the man opened it, drank the contents and returned it to the shelf. The shoplifter repeated the process, drinking the second bottle in the toy department, the report noted.

The man picked up and paid for prescriptions, but left the store without paying the $1.92 he owed for the hairspray. » Article here
