Back in October, someone started walking into a hospital in Altoona, Pennsylvania and stealing bottles of hand sanitizer. And it happened over and over again for MONTHS. (Altoona is about 100 miles east of Pittsburgh.) Well, last month police finally arrested 51-year-old Lee Ammerman after they saw him walking around the hospital, questioned him, and he admitted to the thefts. And when they asked WHY he needed so much hand sanitizer, he explained that he enjoyed mixing it with ORANGE JUICE and DRINKING IT, for the alcohol. It's not clear how many brain cells Lee has killed since October . . . or how many he had to BEGIN WITH. But in all, he stole about $80 worth of hand sanitizer, and faces charges of misdemeanor theft and receiving stolen property. He's due in court February 5th.
