On April 18, one Connecticut man took mani-pedi night with the girls one step too far. Middleton resident Marco Gonzales was arrested at a local CVS store for trying to steal 102 bottles of nail polishes, police said.
The Middletown Press reported that the loss prevention officer gave a sworn written statement that Gonzales walked into the store on Thursday night "and started selecting and concealing Essie and Sally Hansen brand nail polishes into his sweatshirt."
According to NBC News, police from Middletown, Conn. confronted the 42-year-old man at 9 p.m. at the CVS, where he admitted that he had no plans to pay for the nail polish. Each nail polish bottle cost $8.49 before taxes, police said, with the total amount reaching $865.98.
Gonzales was then taken into police custody, where he was charged with 5th-degree larceny, NBC News reported. The nail polish bandit was later released on a $10,000 bond and is set to appear in court on May 1.
NBC News reported that the CVS senior loss prevention officer said the store does plan to press charges.
