Florida court records show that a career criminal somehow stuffed up to eleven liquor bottles at a time down his pants in a booze theft spree that ended with the filing of multiple criminal charges. Investigators allege that 55-year-old Anthony Whitfield swiped nearly $3,000 in alcohol during eight separate thefts over the past two months. Whitfield victimized Walmart, Walgreens, and Publix stores in the St. Petersburg area. Whitfield would stuff the liquor bottles down his pants and then depart the retailers “with a limp that was not present upon entering.” On November 23rd, Whitfield walked out of a Walmart with eleven bottles of Jack Daniels whiskey hidden in his pants. Four days later, Whitfield limped out of a Walgreens with four bottles of Jack Daniels, two bottles of Crown Royal, two bottles of Jameson, and a bottle of Baileys Irish Cream in his pants. When presented with assorted store surveillance footage, Whitfield reportedly identified himself as the thief recorded in the act. Facing multiple felony theft charges, Whitfield is being held in the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $40,000 bond. (
