Allegedly stealing $4,000 of cologne from his place of employment resulted in a 47-year-old Columbus man being arrested earlier this month.
Officers from the New Albany Police Department responded at 6 p.m. May 14 to a report of theft at a business in the 6300 block of Fitch Path, according to police reports.
The man was charged with theft for stealing cologne and is accused of selling it online, something he is believed to have been doing for a period of a couple months, said Sgt. Kris Daniels.
The investigation remains open so police can see if other items were stolen, Daniels said.
