Parma police looking for man and woman who stole almost $300 worth of Tide Pods

Posted at 1:30 PM, Apr 02, 2018

Parma police are looking for a man and a woman who allegedly stole $278.45 worth of Tide Pods from the Giant Eagle on Day Drive.

The detergent pods have been the center of the "Tide Pod Challenge," an internet meme that began as photos of colorful laundry pods topping foods but quickly devolved into teens recording themselves biting into the laundry packs because America isn't allowed to have nice things anymore.

Police say the suspects stole the detergent pods around 9:51 p.m. on March 26. Both are believed to be in their 20s or 30s and may be driving in an older red pick-up truck. Their clothing may be extremely clean. We repeat: extremely clean.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Patrolman Renken at 440-885-1234.
