NEWPORT NEWS -- Newport News police are noticing a trend that doesn't deserve a toast.

Over the last six months, the city has experienced a rash of shoplifting at ABC stores all over the city.

Police say it's a matter of time before the thieves are caught. 

"All of the ABC stores are equipped with excellent surveillance cameras," said Officer Justin Briggs. 

Two suspects have been arrested as a result of surveillance video, Briggs said.  

Police have released video of one suspect, who has shoplifted eight times at a store on Hiden Blvd.  His beverage of choice -- vodka.

If you have any information you are encouraged to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
