Loudoun 'toothbrush bandits' strike again
The toothbrush bandits were back on Saturday.
In the latest theft of high-end oral hygiene products from Loudoun County grocery stores, a man swiped four electric toothbrushes, whitening strips and a 12-pack of toilet paper from a Giant in Ashburn on Saturday afternoon, sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell said.
Investigators think the toilet paper could have been used to conceal the other items.
Officials said the man is described as white and about 6 feet tall with short brown hair, walked into the Giant about 2 pm and took the items. He was then spotted leaving in a blue sedan with Colorado plates driven by another white man.
The theft follows three similar ones at Harris Teeter grocery stores around the county in recent weeks.
