According to Middletown police, Marco Gonzalez, 42, entered the store Thursday night and tried to stuff the nail polish into his sweatshirt and pants.
The responding officer met with a CVS employee who identified Gonzalez as the thief. Gonzalez "said that he did not plan on paying for the nail polish," according to the officer who confronted him. The CVS loss prevention officer gave a sworn statement that Gonzalez walked into the store's aisle two “and started selecting and concealing Essie and Sally Hansen brand nail polishes into his sweatshirt."
The nail polish bottles, made by Essie and Sally Hansen, cost $8.49 each. Altogether the nail polish totaled $865.98. Gonzalez was transported to police headquarters, where he was charged with 5th-degree larceny.
