"Red Bull Bandit" wanted by police

The man is accused of stealing several cases of Red Bull from a Maryland Heights Schnucks store.

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A man accused of stealing several cases of Red Bull is wanted by police.

The suspect exited the Schnucks store at 2030 Dorsett Village at 1 p.m. on Monday without paying for a basket full of Red Bull, police say.

Two employees approached him and tried to get him to pay for the drinks, but he implied he had a firearm.

He, however, never displayed a firearm and told the employees to get away from him.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5'10 - 6'0' tall, approximately 180 pounds with a full beard and short hair. He was wearing a gray hoodie and gray sweatpants.

He left the store in a silver passenger vehicle and traveled north on McKelvey Road.

Anyone who can identify this suspect is asked to contact Officer Kolinski at 314-298-8700.
