Two shoplifting incidents were reported at the Peninsula Center in Rolling Hills Estates on two different days, but the suspects – or was it a single suspect with a hankering fora lot of vodka? – stole the exact same thing.

At 8:42 a.m. Feb. 11 (kind of early for vodka, we’ll point out), someone lifted 10 bottles of Cîroc vodka. Then at 4:02 p.m. Feb. 14, another three bottles of Cîroc vodka were stolen from the same location, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff's report from the Lomita Station. 

Deputies say the two cases are related and may also be related to report of four stolen Cognac botlles.

The suspect is described as a white man, around 25-30 years old, about 5 foot, 10 inches and weighs around 160, according to the sheriff's department.
