A man has been charged with shoplifting teeth whitening strips from a grocery store, then reselling them to a secondhand shop in Venango County.
Anthony Kofalt, 39, of Franklin, faces a preliminary hearing Wednesday on retail theft and other charges in Venango County Central Court.
Kofalt reportedly stole the whiteners from a store in Cranberry Township in Venango County, then resold them on five occasions at The Attic, a second-hand store in neighboring Oil City.
Police have seized 21 boxes of the whitening strips, which retail for between $25 and $60.
Kofalt has three previous retail theft convictions, making the current charges against him misdemeanors.
