Oregon shoplifter targets anti-smoking gumApril 29, 2014 @ 2:41 pm
OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) -- The Clackamas County sheriff's office says a serial shoplifter appears to have a second bad habit.
The sheriff's office said the thief has twice hit a Walgreens store on the 82nd Avenue commercial strip and taken hundreds of dollars worth of Nicorette anti-smoking gum. The first theft was last year, the second on Sunday.
The suspect is described as white, nearly 6 feet tall and about 150 pounds. Deputies are calling him the Nicorette Bandit.
The sheriff's office said in a statement that it applauds efforts to quit smoking, but adds: "We urge the public to quit in a lawful manner."
