Man accused of stealing $2,400 worth of wine

Some people will apparently do anything for the perfect glass of wine.

Maximilian Edward Mamahit, 37, was jailed Tuesday evening for allegedly switching the UPC labels on three bottles of high-priced wine, according to an arrest warrant.

Then, the Atlanta man apparently hid two bottles in boxes for soap at the Costco near Cumberland Mall, in effort to pay less for the wine. Mamahit paid the store for the amount of one box of soap and the altered price on one bottle of wine, which was less than retail price.

Mamahit faces a felony shoplifting charge for exiting the store with three bottles of wine valued at nearly $2,400, according to police. He was later arrested at his home and booked into the Cobb County jail.

Mamahit's bond was set at $3,500.
