A petty theft was reported in the 900 block of Town Center Drive on April 5 at 6:30 p.m. The asset protection manager of the location told the deputy that while watching the store through the video surveillance cameras, she saw an adult male wearing a black long sleeve shirt quickly pick out bottles of liquor from the shelf and place it in a red bag. Believing the suspect would steal items because of his behavior, the manager waited for him at the front entrance. The manager saw the suspect walk past the cash registers without paying for the items and immediately identified herself to the suspect before reaching for the bag of liquor. The suspect ran away toward City Hall and entered a black automobile later identified as a Mercedez-Benz E class sedan thanks to surveillance footage. The suspect drove out of the parking lot and out of view. Officials said the suspect stole two bottles of Don Julio Añejo and two bottles of Don Julio Blanco. The manager described the suspect as a man, approximately 18-20 years old, wearing a black long sleeved shirt, gray pants and black shoes.
