A Middletown man was arrested Thursday night after trying to steal more than 100 bottles of nail polish from a local CVS, police said.

According to police, Marco Gonzalez, 42, entered the store Thursday night and stuffed 102 bottles of nail polish into his sweatshirt and pants. Middletown police confronted him around 9 p.m. at the CVS on Washington Street in Middletown.

The nail polish bottles, made by Essie and Sally Hansen, cost $8.49 each. Altogether the nail polish totaled $865.98.

Gonzalez admitted that he was not planning to pay for the nail polish, police said.

Gonzalez was transported to police headquarters, where he was charged with 5th-degree larceny. He was released on $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court May 1.

A CVS senior loss prevention officer said the store plans to press charges.
