A thief stole 26 12-can cases of Red Bull from Publix in three separate robberies, possibly part of a larger wave of Red Bull robberies in Broward.

Some overactive folks hit the Red Bull too hard. In Weston, someone has been hitting Publix hard for Red Bull.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office said on Jan. 12, a man strolled into the Publix at 1170 Weston Rd., loaded up his cart with 11 cases of Red Bull 12-packs and left without paying. Surveillance video caught the same man doing the same thing with four cases later minutes later at the Weston Town Center Publix, 1601 Promenade Blvd.

He returned to the second Publix on Feb. 5 and stole another 11 cases.

BSO detectives believe the 6-2, roughly 160-pound man, in his 20s, might be using rental cars for the thefts and could have swiped Red Bull from other Broward stores.

Anyone with information on these robberies is asked to contact BSO Detective Juan Hernandez at 954-659-3531; Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477 or via the website. Tips leading to an arrest can be eligible for a reward up to $3,000.
