MONROE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana man is accused of trying to shoplift nearly $1,300 worth of cologne.

The arrest report by Monroe police says a witness in a Pecanland Mall store saw 61-year-old Dwight Davis of Ruston put 14 bottles of cologne in his purse and try to leave without paying. The estimated total value was $1,260, working out to $90 a bottle.

The News-Star reports that Davis was arrested Friday on one count of felony theft.

The Ouachita Parish jail’s website indicated that he remained in jail Monday, with his bond set at $3,500.

It was not clear whether he had an attorney who could speak for him.

A woman who answered a number listed for his address in an online directory said she had nothing to say.
