EW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — Thieves who stole 15 bottles of laundry detergent from a Massachusetts home have made a clean getaway.

New Bedford police Lt. Amos Melo says the homeowner called police Saturday night after returning home and finding that someone had used the stairs leading to the room where the laundry detergent was stored.

Melo tells The Standard-Times (http://bit.ly/2bOQkEM ) the detergent was worth about $250. Nothing else was taken from the home.

 He says laundry detergent may seem like an unlikely target for thieves, but it can easily be sold for money, which can be used to buy drugs.
After all, he said, “Everybody can use laundry detergent.”
