Two men, both 19-year-olds, in College Station, Texas, have been accused of stealing an estimated sum of $1,164 in various beer brands from a grocery store, according to KBTX. Per the report, one of the men informed police that the allegedly stolen alcohol was a “way to provide drinks at house parties” the two were attending.
According to College Station police, Harold Collins and Bryce Otis took the alcohol on two separate occasions, with the first apparent theft occurring on Sept. 15, KBTX reported.
According to KBTX, Collins and Otis were accused of placing $364 worth of Michelob Ultras, Twisted Teas and two Fireball Beer and Wine buckets into a store’s shopping cart and then exiting without paying.
