Man arrested for stealing hotel soap

Cops in Chicago witnessed a man stealing cases of hotel soap from the back of a truck Friday. They chased and apprehended him a short distance away.

At about 3:15am Friday, police were patrolling the area when they saw a man who appeared to be stealing from a parked truck. They confronted him and when he refused to be handcuffed, he was pepper sprayed and fled on foot. He was apprehended about a block away.

Police discovered the truck was full of hotel soap and said that thieves rarely know what trucks are carrying before they break into them.
