A 69-year-old man apparently had a big night planned when police say he tried stealing condoms and bottles of lotion from a Roxbury, Massachusetts, store.
Harry Johnson is facing charges of unarmed robbery after he was arrested outside the Tremont Street Walgreen’s & Stop Shop Shopping Center, police said. According to police, Johnson walked into the store, began stashing items under his shirt and in his backpack, and walked out without paying.
When store employees confronted him outside, Johnson grabbed his waist — as if he was reaching for a weapon — and told them, “I have a gun,” before lunging at them in what police described as a “threatening manner.”
When police searched him, officers found no gun, but did find a 12-pack of Trojan Magnum condoms under Johnson’s shift and five bottles of Nivea lotion inside his backpack. Johnson was arraigned at Roxbury District Court on Friday. A judge set bail at $1,500 and ordered Johnson to stay away and have no contact with the victims and location where the incident occurred. He is due back in court on Oct. 12.
