Police baffled by wave of detergent thefts
DENVER — Authorities are hoping suspects come clean following a rash of thefts of laundry detergent and expensive face lotion across Colorado.
To combat the rising tide of thefts, supermarkets are installing more surveillance cameras to help catch the criminals. They are also hiring undercover agents.
According to KCNC-TV, authorities believe thieves are targeting those products because of high prices.
Police have surveillance video of a suspect in Ft. Lupton getting away with $8,100 of detergent from six different stores.
