Detectives try to ID man who broke cooler door, stole beer

Theft occurs at convenience store on Big Coppitt Key


KEY WEST, Fla. – Detectives are asking for the public's help identifying a man who broke the glass door of a convenience store cooler and stole a pack of beer.

It happened Feb. 18 at the Dion's Quik Mart on Big Coppitt Key.

Monroe County Sheriff's Office detectives said a shirtless man entered the store and walked to the beer cooler on the back wall. He punched the glass, shattering it, and then walked to the counter, where a customer had placed a four-pack of Natural Ice.

The man took the beer and walked out without paying for it.

Detectives said he left in a silver, four-door sedan, possibly a Nissan Sentra, with a Florida license plate.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call detectives at 305-292-7060.
