New York ‘Shampoo Bandit’ Arrested
New York is known for a lot of amazing things, and some dark history. Perhaps in the chapters of the darkest would be a page on New York's Shampoo Bandit.
Ok, maybe not. But it still is a funny story to share.
Niagara Falls police have caught the "shampoo bandit" 42-year-old Shawn Awtry. Police have charged him with stealing hundreds of dollars of shampoo from Buffalo area stores.
"The incidents began in early February when the CVS in the city market reported the theft of 32 bottles of shampoo worth more than $260 by a man who was seen on store video surveillance shoplifting products. Two days later, another drugstore nearby reported the loss of more than 20 bottles of shampoo worth $170."
The incidents began in early February, and hopefully will now be resolved. Bottles of conidtioner were taken in for questioning.
