Dalton Police search for Botox bandit

May 19th, 2014 by WRCB-TV Channel 3 in Local - Breaking News

Detectives in North Georgia are searching for a "Botox bandit." Dalton Police say thieves got away with thousands of dollars worth of wrinkle-reducing treatments from a dental office and fear the criminals are turning around and injecting people illegally on the black market.

Investigators are asking for the public's help finding the person or people who stole what they consider a large amount Botox and Juvederm from a Dalton dental office. The medicines are used there to treat jaw clenching and teeth grinding. They're also popular cosmetic treatments for reducing wrinkles and that's how investigators think the culprit is making money off the heist. It's an act that's not only illegal but also dangerous to the people they're injecting.

Dalton Police say this may be their first black market Botox investigation.
