Caseyville police were searching Friday for a man who was caught on camera shoving several 4-packs of Red Bull in his pants during the first of the three times he is suspected of stealing the energy drinks from a store.
Overall, the man is accused of taking about 30 4-packs, or 120 cans, of Red Bull from the store, police said in a news release.
The theft suspect can be seen in surveillance footage putting at least 11 four-packs of Red Bull down his pants at about 3 p.m. on July 11.
Later that day, the man is suspected of taking eight more 4-packs of Red Bull after he paid for gas. The man appears to have sweat pants on and this makes it possible for him to put so many items in his pants, police said.

The next day, on July 12, the man took about 11 more 4-packs of Red Bull from the store, which was not identified.
The man was driving a tan or gold Ford Focus that apparently has an Illinois license plate, police said. The only tire on the car that has a hubcap is on the front driver’s side.
Investigators have posted a surveillance video and photos on Facebook in hope that someone would recognize the man.
Anyone who sees this man or has information about him is asked to call the Caseyville Police Department at 618-344-2151 during business hours and Cencom at 618-825-2681 during after hours.
