A Chicago man allegedly took quite a few pains to break into a dollar store and steal deodorant: Police say the suspect first stole a Bobcat loader from a construction site a block away, then used it to break the windows at West Side Family Dollar. In addition to the two cans of deodorant, he allegedly also nabbed some gift cards, but didn’t even attempt to grab the cash register. He was arrested nearby after the alarm company, which watched the entire incident via its cameras, alerted police, the Tribune reports. (More strange stuff stories.)
