Florida man steals candles, sprays everyone with bear mace


Police are looking for a Florida man who stole candles from Miami Bath and Body Works — and ended the stolen booty by sprinkling everyone on his way with a bear mace, reports said Sunday.

“It’s one of those ‘only in Miami’ stories,” Doral Police spokesman Ray Valdes told LOVEBYLIFE.

Valdes told the outlet that the suspect robbed a Miami International Mall store on Saturday and injured at least 30 people with a direct hit in the face with a bear repellent and needed to be hospitalized.

About 15 shop workers were among those who sprayed.

Given the serious nature of the assault and the injuries sustained, the offense could be considered aggravated battery and the suspect is looking at “potentially 30 to 35 felonies,” Valdes said.

He was last seen leaving the mall in a taxi.
