The New York Post reports that there’s a nationwide crime wave of Tide detergent thefts. It’s so bad that police departments are forming a “Tide Task Force” and stores like CVS are starting to lock it up. Some drug dealers even trade it for drugs. In Maryland, where Tide is known as “Liquid Gold”, an undercover cop tried to buy some cocaine, and the dealer said, “I don’t have drugs, but I can sell you 15 bottles of Tide”. 

- And so far everyone of these criminals has made a really clean getaway. 

- Cops vow to get these theives with the “Long Arm & Hammer of The Law”. 

- Police say even so called “soft stuff” can lead to an addiction to Tide. So tell your kids to stay away from Downey!
