Apopka mother and son arrested in $100,000 toothbrush theft ring

Updated:

APOPKA, Fla. - A mother and son from Apopka are the suspected ringleaders of a bizarre statewide theft ring.

Investigators said Clint and Mary Curtiss led the group that stole more than $100,000 worth of toothbrushes in the past year.

But investigators believe the operation may be much larger, and the group actually started in 2011.

Another Apopka woman, Laura Torres, is also facing charges in the case.
