The Coppell man police called the "Oil of Olay bandit" turned himself in on Wednesday.

Police said investigators believe Efrain Hardman, 27, stolen tens of thousands of dollars worth of skincare products.

Coppell police said Hardman turned himself in at about noon and was booked on a felony theft warrant.

NBC 5 aired a report on Hardman on Tuesday night after police named him the primary suspect in the theft of $40,000 worth of Oil of Olay skincare products. The products were stolen from nearly three dozen North Texas Tom Thumb grocery stores across the Metroplex between December 2011 and Sunday.

Police said Hardman was trying to resell the pilfered skincare products to make a living after he lost his job at an Irving fast food restaurant.

Hardman has been charged with four thefts in Coppell. Police there said other cities are interested in also pressing charges against him.
