Woman Indicted for Stealing $100,000 Worth of Hair Gel

Posted By on Tue, Dec 15, 2015 at 3:56 PM

Lisa Marie Dowell is having a bad hair day after she was indicted on Tuesday for allegedly stealing $100,000 worth of hair gel from Ampro Industries, Inc., the company she worked for.

Dowell, 46, faces felony charges of theft over $100,000 for reportedly stealing 24 pallets of gel between July and October 2013. She was one of four employees who worked at the Ampro warehouse and one of two employees with a key and alarm code to the building.

In November 2013, a DeSoto County Sheriff's detective discovered one of the pallets of gel at a flea market in Olive Branch. A jar of Ampro Pro Style Styling Gel was covertly purchased by investigators, and they were able to link it to the stolen pallets.

City CAO Jack Sammons serves as the president of Ampro Industries.
