Man steals 13 bottles of booze from Walgreens, mostly in his pants

How do you know your store security stinks?  When this happens.

According to the Peoria JournalStar, a unidentified man in his late teens or early 20s strolled into a local Walgreens Monday night and stole 13 bottles of booze by stuffing them down his pants.

In fact, he did it in two trips, made within the space of ten minutes.  And all of it was caught on security video.

During the first trip, the thief stuck five bottles total of Jose Cuervo tequila and Captain Morgan rum into his britches, grabbed a few smaller items, and walked past the counter and out of the store, with no one apparently noticing or trying to stop him or, apparently, questioning what had to be some extremely suspicious bulges in his pantaloons.

A few minutes later, the same guy returned, this time shoving four more bottles of booze into his pants and another four into his backpack.  And again, he sailed out of the Walgreens unchallenged.

Police are still looking for the thief.
