P*ss artist leaves foul taste in cops' mouths

Florida police are hunting a man who took a slash over a drugstore's stock of cough drops before trying, unsuccessfully, to get a prescription filled.

The "hefty" individual walked into a branch of Walgreens in Sanford, Florida at 10.30pm last Thursday, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

CCTV showed him roaming the aisles before lighting on the store's cough drops selection, whereupon he looked around before unzipping himself and taking a whizz all over the stock.

With staff completely unaware of his pollution of the pile of pastilles, he then went to the pharmacy counter to pick up a prescription. However, he did not have the appropriate paperwork, and he then left the store.

It was only when a member of staff noticed a strong smell of urine and played back the store's CCTV that his befouling of the throat remedies was uncovered. The slack-bladdered perp had ruined 100 packets worth $300 dollars.

A shocked Sgt David Morgenstern told NBCMiamai: "I don't know what the problem is, but he needed something, like he needs to go to jail for what he did. But he may need help because why would you urinate in Walgreens on cough drops?"

Why indeed, when Walgreens is famous for its extensive of goods, from cosmetics and pharmacueticals to general hardware.
