This beats all I've seen, lately.

Use link below to the news story. Tide is the latest thing for people to steal, and then sell.

Quote from article:

"The pharmacy chain CVS is locking down Tide and other laundry detergents in certain parts of the country alongside flu medication and other commonly stolen items."

They'll go wild for the Tide Pods. Even more expensive and even easier to steal. I wonder how many Cascade Complete Pacs go out the door as well?

So werid. People will steal anything. I'm really getting tired of this kind of junk. Why is it that there seems to be so little respect for other people's property these days?

@covingtoncat, it's the times in which we live. I don't foresee it getting any better.

Lots of people don't have respect for other people, kids don't have respect for authority anymore ... I wonder what the future really holds ... sad.

I saw this on the Today show this morning. When they gave the teaser, I thought it was going to be a story about how they used Tide to make drugs, much like the cold medications that I now have to sign my life away to buy.

It's really strange. How did they discover there was a market for this? I guess now Tide will be even more expensive to cover for the theft.

I just saw an article on this.

Crazy!! Tide is expensive tho and possibly easy to steal to make some money. Not yet equipped with security devices and whatnot like high ticket electronics. Weird.
