WARREN — Patron tequila. Ciroc vodka. Hennessy cognac. Police are looking to put two men who allegedly snatched $1,600 worth of top-shelf liquor from a Warren Meijer store behind bars.

According to Detective Sgt. Rob Eidt, of the Warren Police Department, the theft occurred at the Mejier on Mound Road, north of 12 Mile Road, at 2:25 p.m. May 12.

“A security person viewed on closed-circuit TV two suspects taking several bottles of liquor and placing them into duffel bags that were in a cart,” Eidt said. “The suspects then pushed the cart past the registers, and out to a car that was waiting.”

Meijer loss prevention officers told police the license plate of the silver Dodge Charger used by the suspects was obstructed.

An inventory revealed that a total of 36 bottles of booze were taken, with a total value of $1,643. That reportedly included 14 bottles of cognac, 20 bottles of tequila and two bottles of premium vodka.

Eidt said the theft remained under investigation at press time as police reviewed evidence and information provided by Meijer security personnel.

Anyone with information about the suspects, the theft or the whereabouts of the stolen liquor can reach Warren detectives at (586) 574-4810.
