Thief only steals half-used Febreze bottle after breaking into Wichita CBD shop
After kicking in a window wearing flip-flops, it's when he got inside that things got weird.
"He does a 360 very quickly in the lobby, not too.. uh knowing where he's at. Leaves, comes back, and then heads directly to the back of the store," said Harris.
It's not Harris' first rodeo when it comes to people breaking into his stores. He recently closed his downtown location because of so much crime. In February, this man broke through a window, smashed the glass of his display case, and took off with hundreds of dollars worth of Delta-8 THC products.
So Friday, he was expecting a similar loss, but that's when things got even weirder.
"But watch close. As Tank Top Tommy staggers, he finds what he wants. In his left hand, one thing, a half-used bottle of Febreze," Harris said in his video.
"What? A half-empty bottle of Febreze is the only thing Wichita Police found on him," Harris told us.
Police say it didn't take long to track him down.
"A citizen spots him coming out of the window. He's over at McDonald's, he's over at Taco Bell, the cleaner guy from Dillon's is giving them the play-by-play. He's apprehended in seven minutes. So it wasn't like they had to follow the scent, if you know what I mean," said Harris.
Harris says he has a message for anyone thinking about committing similar crimes.
"Really, if you're going to come through a window for whatever minute thing it might be, Wichita PD, and thanks to surveillance and all the security, they're gonna get you."
Harris says if and when Kansas legalizes marijuana, stores will likely be required to install security features like metal bars behind the windows. But until then, he's planning on sticking with his high-quality cameras to continue catching any potential robber.
