LAKE WORTH, Fla., July 16 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said two men allegedly stole hygiene products from a Family Dollar store by stuffing the goods into their underpants.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Nicolas Williams, 24, and Vincent Wilder, 34, were arrested after employees at the Lake Worth store saw them allegedly stuff personal hygiene products into their underpants and attempt to leave the shop without paying, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Tuesday.

Deputies said Williams had used electrical tape to fasten his underpants to his legs and keep the stolen products from falling down the legs of his pants. Wilder did not use tape on his legs.

Williams and Wilder allegedly told police they planned to sell the $339.42 worth of hygiene products they took from the store.
