Police: Ga. man stole 195 sticks of deodorant

Posted: Updated:

AUSTELL, Ga. (AP) - Police say a shoplifter in metro Atlanta had particularly sticky fingers for deodorant sticks, stealing 195 of them from a Target store.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports police in Cobb County obtained an arrest warrant that accuses a Marietta man of stealing $877.80 worth of deodorant between January and April. The warrant says the thefts took place at a Target store in Austell, where the man slipped past the checkout stations with the stolen goods.

The warrant says the man will be charged with felony theft by shoplifting once he's arrest.

Cobb County jail records online show the man had not been booked as of Saturday morning.
