Booze bandit asks what will happen if he steals liquor, then he stole liquor, cops say

Most shoppers ask cashiers how much the merchandise costs before buying it, but Broward Sheriff’s detectives are looking for a man who asked what cashiers would do if he walked out of the store without paying, and then he did just that.

The shoplifter walked into ABC Fine Wine and Spirits 3355 N. Federal Highway in Oakland Park about 8:30 p.m. Feb. 12, investigators said.

Surveillance video shows him picking up a cooler bag and filling it with two bottles of whiskey, two bottles of tequila and a bottle of vodka before going to the checkout counter.

He asked two employees at the cash register what would happen if he decided to walk out without paying. They explained they would call the police. So, he started heading for the door, the video showed.
