NEW YORK (AP) - He didn’t make a clean getaway.

Authorities say a shoplifter tried to steal 26 containers of laundry detergent from a New York City supermarket.

The Staten Island Advance (https://bit.ly/2anov44 ) says the dirty deed occurred Monday night.

Court documents say the man stuffed the detergent - valued at nearly $200 - into a black bag.

He tried to leave the store without paying - but police had a different destination in mind.
