Despite lots of soap, a suspected thief in Decatur fails to make a clean get away.

Count them. Twenty-six bottles of body wash.

Detectives say Mason also assaulted Hometown’s manager when the manager tried to stop him.

Mason is charged with 3rd degree robbery. That’s a felony.

He’s locked in the Morgan County jail on a $2,500 bond.
