Police: Men grab $2,000 in soap, hygiene items

By The Associated Press

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 a store in Sandy Springs, just north of Atlanta.

Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon tells WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/1tiEho6) 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.
