Gary Johnson is a klepto who like to keep his gray hair at bay. The 58-year-old from Newington, New Hampshire, was sentenced to 30 days in jail followed by three months of house arrest under electronic surveillance after he was caught stealing men's hair dye, again.
According to court records, Johnson was found guilty of theft on Nov. 3, 2011, for stealing two bottles of men's hair dye, a flashlight and vitamin C from the Newington Walmart. He was given a deferred six-month jail sentence, which later converted to a suspended sentence, conditional upon his good behavior. A companion order by the local court barred Johnson from shopping unless accompanied by a friend or family member and having a list of items to be purchased and sufficient funds to buy them. He was also fined $1,000, which was paid, according to court records. On Sept. 30, 2012, Johnson was arrested again, this time by Portsmouth police, who allege he stole men's hair dye from the Islington Street Hannaford supermarket. Police are charging Johnson with a felony under state law, which makes a third theft charge a felony, regardless of the value of the stolen item. On Feb. 14, Newington police asked a judge to impose the suspended sentence because of Johnson's subsequent arrest in Portsmouth, and he was sentenced to six months in jail. Johnson's attorney, Peter Anderson, successfully petitioned the court for Thursday's sentencing hearing, stating his client was entitled to debate the terms of his jail sentence before it was imposed. Johnson was also convicted for theft in 2009 when, according to police, he was then known as Gary Michaels. The Portsmouth Herald confirmed through police and court records that Gary Johnson and Gary Michaels have the same birth date and address. [...] That charge followed Portsmouth police allegations that Michaels/Johnson stole six telephones from BJ's Wholesale Club by hiding them in a box made for a television.

How will he cope behind bars with no hair dye in sight? Guess he'll have to improvise.
