A flagrantly fragrant New Jersey man was arrested after he allegedly stole $117,000 worth of perfume.
Juan Bernal, 52, allegedly employed a 17-year-old boy to help him pull off the haute heist. The two are accused of loading thousands of bottles swiped from Cosmetics Essence Innovations in Holmdel into an SUV, according to Patch.
Cops say Bernal stole 1,890 4.2-ounce bottles of 5th Avenue by Elizabeth Arden Friday, valued at $109,620. He also reportedly took 234 3.4-ounce bottles of Victoria's Secret PINK, valued at $7,488.
The unidentified juvenile was reportedly enlisted to help Bernal load the bottles into the back of the SUV, NJ.com reports. It's unclear how the two got caught, but they were both arrested that night.
Bernal was held in the Monmouth County jail on $100,000 bail.
If that's not the weirdest heist of the year so far, this is: in January, two storage workers in Georgia allegedly stole $65,000 worth of chicken wings, just days before the Super Bowl and amid a nationwide chicken wing shortage.
