Shoplifter Caught After Leaving Fingerprints in Play-Doh Meant to Cover Anti-Theft Device: Cops
Authorities in Massachusetts have one alleged attempted shoplifter saying, "Doh!" — or, more accurately, "Play-Doh!"
That's because Leicester Police say the suspect left behind fingerprints in the colorful dough he allegedly used to cover an anti-theft device.
"The attempt to thwart the security device did not work and the suspect fled the scene," police said in a statement. "But the suspect left the Play-Doh behind."
On it, investigators said they found a "very good" print that was run through their system, and it brought up a match, 55-year-old Dennis Jackson, according to the Worcester Telegram.
Cops say the Jackson is already residing in the Worcester County House of Correction and is wanted in at least two other states.
Charges have been filed in connection with the attempted shoplifting. Jackson will be arraigned in court in the near future.
