MIDDLETOWN TWP., Pa. - March 4, 2013 (WPVI) -- Pennsylvania State Police are seeking the whereabouts of a Maryland woman suspected of stealing more than $16,000 worth of toothbrushes.
Police say 47-year old Beate Proeller of Annapolis, Maryland stole close to 200 high priced electronic toothbrushes from the Kohl's department stores in Middletown Township and Morton Borough.

Proeller was charged with retail theft and receiving stolen property.
A warrant has been issued for her arrest.
Proeller uses aliases of Beate Proller, Beate Kanamine and Beate Brandl.
Anyone knowing her whereabouts is asked to call Pennsylvania State Police at 484-840-1000.
