Police had been looking for the suspect who stole at least nine bottles of liquor earlier this month from a Thrifty Liquor in Shreveport, Louisiana.

An unidentified woman can be seen on surveillance video hiding bottles in her purse and under her clothes.

"She's just loading liquor up like she's stockpiling this liquor. I think she paid for one bottle of liquor but she is definitely a thief in the liquor department," Jim Taliaferro with Crime Stoppers told KTAL.
