A man who allegedly drank two bottles of hairspray inside a department store - apparently not for the first time - has been arrested for shoplifting.
The Northwest Florida Daily News reported that a Wal-Mart employee in Okaloosa County told police he'd been trying to catch the man in the act for weeks.
The store's loss prevention officer, Christopher White, reportedly told police how employees would often find empty bottles of hairspray after the man left the building.
But last Friday, Mr White said, he watched the man take a bottle of hairspray off a shelf and walk into the store’s garden department, where he drank it.
Mr White said the man then walked back, allegedly swapped the empty bottle with a full one, then drank it in the toy department.
The newspaper reported the man was alleged to have paid for some prescription medicines, but left without paying for the hairspray.
