0

A body-wash bandit has allegedly hit the same Upper East Side drug store three times in the past month — but was caught on camera in the third incident, police said Wednesday.

The most recent run-in happened around 6 p.m. Oct. 2 when the dirty scoundrel walked into the CVS store on 3rd Avenue between E. 91st Street and E. 92nd Street and strolled out with about $68 worth of Dove body wash, cops said.

That followed two other incidents on Sept. 24 and Sept. 27 when the man went to the same store and left with $60 worth and $37 of the same body wash respectively, according to police.

Each time, when he was confronted by store employees he displayed a knife and fled on foot.

The surveillance video police released was captured from the most recent robbery at the store.
