BRADENTON, Fla. (WFLA) – Bradenton police are looking for a thirsty burglar who broke into a restaurant and stole multiple bottles of alcohol.

The incident, which was caught on camera, happened on July 25 around 1:45 a.m. at Mattison’s Grill at 101 Riverfront Drive in Bradenton.

Police said the young suspect cut a hole through a screen enclosure, climbed through the hole and walked into the restaurant. Once inside, he took multiple bottles of alcohol from their stock.
