SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Police are trying to figure out why three men walked into a CVS pharmacy in Atlanta’s northern suburbs and stole $2,000 in soap and other personal care items.

Authorities say the men were filmed by surveillance cameras as they carried out the July 1 heist at the store on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, just north of Atlanta.

Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon tells WSB-TV the suspects walked into the store and casually grabbed the items, then walked out of the store past cashiers.

Police said they wanted to catch up with the men to find out why they took the products.

Clean get-away

Sounds like they made a clean get-a-way. No one can call them a dirty stinking crook.

Probably just looking for items to sell to ladies to get money for drugs. $2000 is a lot of just soap. My guess is there's some toiletry items that they can easily sell.

Every business should have an armed guard at the door checking receipts. Oh wait....that would cost money. It's cheaper for the business to just raise the prices on people that actually pay for stuff to make up for the stuff the low life thieves steal.

I would rather they go ahead and price their merchandise to include enough to hire full time armed guards at the door checking receipts just to deny shoplifters and snatch and grab thieves.
