A man walks out of the BJ's Wholesale Club in Parkland with six bottles of liquor without paying for them.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Detectives are searching for a man stealing liquor from various wholesale clubs throughout Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Broward Sheriff's Office deputies Thursday released surveillance video of an Aug. 4 theft at the BJ's Wholesale Club in Parkland.

Surveillance video shows the man walk out of the store with six assorted liquor bottles without paying. He rode away in a gold, four-door Honda Accord.

Detectives said he returned four days later, taking six bottles of Hennessy whiskey without paying for them. He got away in a gray Toyota Camry.

The same man walked out of a Costco in Pompano Beach without paying for a 12-pack of Patron tequila Aug. 17. He left in what appeared to be the same gold Accord used in the first theft.

Less than a week later the man returned to the Costco and took four bottles of Grey Goose vodka, again getting away in the gold Accord.

Detectives believe the man has committed similar thefts in Boca Raton and Davie.
