Beaver Creek shoplifter isn’t very sneaky

BEAVER CREEK, Colorado “-The best time to steal from where you work apparently isn’t when you are closing the store for the night with your manager. An 18-year-old in Beaver Creek, Colorado looking to make some extra cash on the side found that out on Dec. 12.

The sheriff’s report said that the 18-year-old was closing up shop with his manager that night when the alarm went off as the two walked out of the store. At that point, it was easy to figure out who was in trouble.

The young man told police he tried swiping two T-shirts from the store so he could sell them to his friend. One was worth $38 and the other was worth $20, the report said.

The man was arrested the next morning, summonsed and released.
