OSPREY, Fla. - Deputies went to a robbery suspect's house to arrest him -- only to apparently interrupt his exfoliating session.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office identified 23-year-old Trentin Richardson as their suspect in an armed robbery of a retail store in Osprey on Monday, after finding his fingerprints at the scene.
Investigators said the victim witnessed a male suspect leaving the store, located in the 13000 block of S. Tamiami Trail. He was spotted going through an emergency exit with a cart full of merchandise.

After recovering Richardson's fingerprints from the store, deputies went to arrest Richardson and his accomplice, a 17-year-old woman.
When investigators arrived at Richardson's home early Friday morning, they found him wearing a mud mask. He was arrested and taken to jail, still wearing the mask on his face.
