Peter Hans Emery, 56, was caught on camera stealing a bottle of pills from someone’s lockbox. Peter was seen pouring the bottle of pills into his hands and fleeing the scene.

Peter was under the impression that he had stolen the valuable and dangerous hydrocodone, but it was really a bottle of laxatives. Peter had gotten confused when he read “hydrocodone acetaminophen” on the label, but the bottle actually contained Equate Gentle Laxatives. He admitted what he had done to police as soon as they confronted him about it.
