FTA: According to deputies, employees and other witnesses saw Tracy Jay Mofield, 37, of Islamorada walk out of the store with six electric toothbrushes without paying for them. He was then seen driving off in a white Lexus.

If he had just gone to Walmart, he could have stolen them for half that price.

Walgreens has a zero interaction policy with shoplifters.  You could scoop all the wine you can fit into a shopping cart, roll it out, and the store personnel are only allowed to observe and memorize details about the perp.

He probably didn't want to get all dressed up.

Caught stealing $1375 in toothbrushes from Walgreens? How hard is to hide a couple toothbrushes?

Who in the hell would buy a $229 toothbrush?   The dentist gives manual ones away free every cleaning.

I was walking out of a Dick's Sporting Goods and a bunch of teens rushed past me dropping merchandise followed by two people in pursuit, the store assistant manager and a guy that was checking out.

I asked if they wanted me to call the police and they said they're not allowed to. There is no way I'd take a job where part of it was running down shoplifters in the parking lot.

Overpriced toothbrushes are one place to blow FSA dollars when you put too much in a "use it or loose it" type account.

I believe the plural of toothbrush is teethbrush.

Six of them must be the version with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, automatic posting to social media your brushing data, brush cam, and backup to the cloud.

That's standard practice. It's a matter of liability. Corporations would rather take the loss from stolen merchandise than pay the expenses related to an employee who was shot or assaulted while confronting a thief. As always under capitalism, it's all about the money.

Most of the loss goes out the back anyway.

Actually running them down? Sounds like fun.

Did he understand the cavity of the situation?

I'll see myself out

I thought this was going to be someone putting every toothbrush in the store into his card and walking out.  But no, $1375 is six toothbrushes??????

A high-end waterpik toothbrush is $150.  What in the world are they selling at Walgreens for over $200 each?

Is this the serious plaque?

Checking their website they have 3 Oral B models for over $200 but they all are marked "not sold in stores"

Maybe this guy was stealing toothbrushes to sell underground to the dentists that don't want to pay full price, then sock a high value to their patients?

Seems legit to me...

Better get some tooth guards for those brushes.
