These thieves should smile for their mugshots

The toothbrush bandits are at it again.

Loudoun Sheriff's investigators are searching for two men suspected of stealing about $2,000 worth of electric toothbrushes and other high-end dental products this month.

The men have been walking into Harris Teeter stores, putting the products in their carts, and leaving without paying, said Loudoun Sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell.

The men first struck at Harris Teeter in Aldie on Feb. 15. The next day they hit a Brambleton store. And one day later, Feb. 17, they struck for the third time at an Harris Teeter in Ashburn. Products worth several hundred dollars were taken each time, officials said.

Troxell said thefts of higher-end grocery store and office supply store products aren't unusual, but this is the first time he's heard of a tooth brush thief. A few years back, he recalled, there was a rash of thefts of printer cartridges.

These are surveillance photos taken from the scenes.

Not Black or Latino, not from DC or PG county so no stereotypical race based post from white people apply here. Hence no post.

Criminals are criminals. Whatever their color. White people don't make excuses for white criminals. Say whatever you want about white criminals. No one will get upset, cry or scream "foul!"

The gangsta is not your friend.
