Man Accused of Stealing 52 Liquor Bottles on the run
Police seek a Wisconsin man who they say stole 52 liquor bottles from Metro Market grocery store last week, according to KTVZ.
According to police, the man stole 24 bottles last Tuesday and returned Thursday to take another 28. The second batch alone was worth about $1,800. The burglaries took place at the Metro Market on Bluemound Road in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Police describe the suspect as a white man in his late 20s, 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds.
This is pretty impressive from a logistical standpoint. Even split over two trips, it’s hard to imagine inconspicuously walking out with 52 bottles. Still this isn’t the largest-scale theft we’ve seen recently. Last month, about $384,164 worth of WKD Blue Vodka was stolen in Scotland. The burglars used in three 18-wheelers to make off with the stolen spirits.
Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to contact Officer Eaves at 262-787-3702 or via e-mail at [email protected] To make an anonymous tip, contact Waukesha County Crime Stoppers by calling 1-888-441-5505, through the website at stopcrimewaukesha.com, or through the new P3 phone app that can be downloaded through either the App Store or Google Play.
