PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office is requesting the public’s help in identifying two men who allegedly took more than $750 worth of alcoholic beverages from a Port Charlotte Walgreens last Thursday.

The theft happened on Friday at the store on King's Highway at Rampart Boulevard.

According to the sheriff's office, employees doing an inventory of the liquor store found that three cases of alcoholic beverages were unaccounted for. Surveillance video showed that on the previous day between about 5:30 and 6:00 pm, two Black males had entered the store together. While one of the men went elsewhere in the store, the second man seemed to ask the clerk about merchandise behind the counter. While the clerk was distracted, the second man was seen signaling the first who wheeled a shopping cart with three cases of merchandise out of the store.

The Sheriff’s Office is attempting to identify the Black male in the dark colored shirt in one photo and the Black male in the plaid shirt and baseball hat in the second photo.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to please call the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office at (941) 639-2101, or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477).
