Jan. 30, 2015
EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts police have arrested a Connecticut man they say stole almost $300 worth of energy drinks from an East Longmeadow supermarket.
Sgt. Patrick Manley says Big Y security personnel saw the suspect on surveillance video enter the store about 5 p.m. Monday, load $177 worth of Red Bull and Monster Energy into a shopping cart, and leave.
Store workers staked out the energy drink section at about the same time Thursday, and the man returned.
This time he loaded a cart with about $114 worth of Red Bull and Monster, and was arrested.
The suspect was identified as 31-year-old Bryan Kneeland, of East Hampton, Connecticut. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
Manley tells The Republican (http://bit.ly/1CHzlMb ) that stolen energy drinks are often resold on the black market.
