LAKE BLUFF, Ill. (AP) The so-called Spa Bandit is now feeling the heat in another way.
A 56-year-old suspect was arrested last weekend near a train station.
Authorities said the man received a number of services in at least 20 spas in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin since last March and left without paying.
He is accused of stealing nearly US$1,000 over the past year in body waxings, massages, haircuts, facials, sea salt body scrubs, tangerine body quenches, manicures and pedicures.
