Clean freak

The jerk took the products off the shelves in the store near Avenue Z at about 2:20 pm, and when a worker tried to stop him, he socked him in the left shoulder, according to authorities. The punk dropped the soaps in his haste as he fled shirtless toward Avenue Y, police said.

Cashed out

The guy told police he parked his delivery vehicle near Shore Parkway at 6:50 pm to make a delivery, and when he returned about 10 minutes later, he noticed some good-for-nothing had broken his passenger-side front window and swiped $1,700 and four checks worth a total of $5,700, according to authorities.
