3 Colored Ladies Sought for Big Theft of Tide Laundry Detergent


As much as I follow the news, I never knew that Tide pods were used by our darkie neighbors in the drug trade as street currency.

It must be easier for them to steal Tide than steal real currency.


Three women are being sought for cleaning out a Tangipahoa Parish Dollar General store of its supply of Tide Pods laundry detergent, a product that has over the years become widely recognized as ad hoc street currency in the national drug trade.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying the women who stole more than $450 worth of Tide laundry detergent Tuesday afternoon (May 15) from the store at the intersection of Old Baton Rouge Highway and Pumpkin Center Road in Hammond. The suspects The subjects reportedly fled the store in an older model brown SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Suburban.

The trio is also suspected to have stolen hundreds of dollars worth of Tide Pods from a store in Livingston Parish, Tangipahoa Parish authorities said.

Several years ago, thieves began stealing Tide laundry detergent from stores across the country, thefts that initially baffled police. Investigators eventually concluded that the popular and recognizable laundry detergent brand was being stolen and traded on the street for cash, weed or cocaine, according to published reports.

Everything from salt to cigarettes have been used as money in history. Leave it to the darkies to take a product easily stolen and use it as money.

Will retailers have to lock up the Tide in glass cases now?

  1. Is this the one people swallow to clean out their innards or get some weird drug effect. “What a buzz, man”. Packaged colorfully to look like a Kinder Surprise. Brilliant way to package caustic laundry detergent which presumably would kill a kiddie.

    If Tide Pods are currency, why not simply buy them?

    If people are so criminal that they steal everything they want, why do they need cash at all?

      • Ah yes, the tide pod eaters generation. Soon coming to political arenas near you. These morons in a couple of decades will be influencing our public policy.

    • ” Brilliant way to package caustic laundry detergent … ”
      Exactly. And the colorful packaging serves no purpose. It shouldn’t be that difficult to come up with a non-toxic coating that tastes terrible that would keep little kids from eating the stuff.

  2. A few years ago, in Sacramento, California, a female black shoplifted some Tide detergent. If I recall correctly, she pushed her way out of the store and got into her car and drove off. The police were called and there was a car chase and standoff for 20 minutes while the female black refused to exit her car.

    Apparently, detergent can’t be purchased with food stamps. Tide is a brand name and a status symbol in the ghetto. Unfortunately, I can’t find the article or the link.

    • I buy cheap detergent and put it in the Tide bottle. Same way I buy cheap vodka and put it in the Grey Goose bottle. Like people are detergent and vodka experts.
