SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. —

Sandy Springs police say three men stole nearly $2,000 in soap and other personal care items from a CVS store and then made a clean getaway.

Surveillance cameras caught images of the men July 1 at the store on Roswell Road.

“They just walked in the store and casually grabbed as much personal care items, tooth paste, soap, items like that,” said Sgt. Ron Momon with the Sandy Springs Police Department.

Momon said the men simply walked out of the store past cashiers.

“Someone saw them walking out, but I’m sure they didn’t want to confront three guys walking out with items,” Momon told Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik.

Customers told Petchenik they were surprised to hear of the bizarre theft.

“My first guess would be, they’re taking care of a lot of people?” wondered Memri Lerch.  “There are so many jokes.”

Customer Chris Lusted told Petchenik he wondered if the men were clean freaks.

“I guess they were dirty and needed a shower,” he said.

Either way, police said they wanted to catch up with the men to find out why they took the products.

“I’d really like to know myself what they did with these items,” Momon said.
