Police need dental arithmetic to solve tooth kit thefts
An Ohio man accused of stealing more than 2,500 dollars (£1,750) worth of teeth whitening kits has given police the brush-off with a clean getaway.
The 46-year-old suspect has apparently taken only Crest brand whitening strips in numerous breathtaking thefts over the past two months from stores in and around Columbus.
He stole strips worth 420 dollars (£293) from one store alone in Ohio's capital.
Police say it is unusual to see so many thefts of the same brand of product.
