ODESSA – One man is behind bars for allegedly stealing body wash from an Odessa store.

Odessa Police were called out to the El Rancho Super Mercado on East 8th Street Saturday afternoon in reference to a shoplifter.

Store employees told police that they saw 30-year-old Barry Dewayne Carter II, conceal two bottles of Dove Body Wash on his person and exit the store without paying for the items.

According to the report, when a store employee confronted Carter, Carter pushed the employee and later hit the employee, causing bodily injury.

Surveillance video was reviewed and was consistent with the store employee's statement.

Carter has been charged with robbery and the two bottles of Dove Body Wash, valued at just over $15, were returned to the store.
