Stealing makeup

Is it really that profitable? Copper wire, I could see. But foundation and lipstick?
Police were looking for four males who may be involved in a cosmetics crime ring.

The four young men, believed to be between the ages of 18 and 20, were caught stuffing makeup into some baggy clothing by a manager at a CVS Pharmacy at Callaghan and DeZavala roads on Tuesday night, police said.

When the manager confronted the men, one of them punched the manager in the face, police said. The men then threw some makeup in the manager's face and left the store without taking anything.

Moments later, the men went to a CVS Pharmacy at Bitters and Huebner roads and made off with some makeup and body spray, police said.

The police think the thieves are stealing the makeup to sell. And I would hope so. It would be weird if they were doing it so they could actually use it.

We're the young men by chance wearing heels? Any Spandex?

You never know, they could just be some regular ol' drag queens on their way to a show...

But, if they were wearing Spandex, I suppose they could just be in an '80s metal tribute band!

If they were fans of The Cure then it wouldn't be so weird... especially eye liner and red lipstick... :)

Thanks for the New Year's wishes you left on my blog, btw... it was very thoughtful!
