Three subjects entered the Giant, with one grabbing a case of Twisted Tea, and all three fled the scene in a white vehicle. A store employee was able to identify the suspect as a former classmate. Two officers responded to the suspect’s home, nearby in the county and noted the presence of a vehicle, the same make, model and color of the getaway car. They spoke to the suspect, who initially claimed not to be anywhere near the Giant, although the officer showed him a still photo of him in front of the store with the purloined beverages. Warrants in this case are pending.
