The suspected thief carried the boxes out a backdoor, setting off an emergency exit alarm. A manager rushed to the back door, but did not see anyone. He checked the surveillance system and saw the suspect had been dropped off at the front door in a red Toyota. The tequila thief headed for a rear storage room and took the boxes of fermented blue agave, heading for the back door.

The suspect was described as black with a hair net for dreadlocks, wearing a black T-shirt, jean shorts and white sneakers. It was not clear whether the suspect was a man or a woman.
