LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Investigators are looking to identify a group of men seen on surveillance video stealing expensive champagne from a liquor store.

According to Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers, just before noon on Monday, four unknown Hispanic males entered the Publix store, located on Palm Beach Boulevard near State Road 31.  

Surveillance video shows two suspects selecting two bottles of Moet champagne and placing them into a shopping cart.  Two additional suspects then approached and loaded up four more bottles of Moet.  Once all customers left the aisle, the men placed nearly $350 worth of champagne into brown plastic bags.  

One suspect stood by the store’s front door, while a second suspect left with the brown plastic bags filled with stolen champagne.  The remaining two perpetrators fled shortly thereafter.

Anyone with information on the identities and whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.
