Kool Florida Guy Uses A Handy Aid

A Florida man was arrested after shoplifting nearly $1,000 worth of items in a truly ingenious manner.

A Florida man is accused of using a 24-cent packet of Kool-Aid to rack up nearly $1,000 in fraudulent charges at a Walmart in North Naples.

Deputies said Bradley Young scanned merchandise at the Walmart with the Kool-Aid packet hidden in his hand. Each item rang up for 24 cents. The final bill ended up being just under $25. The goodies were really worth $994.13.

Um, Bradley, Steve Martin and the writers of My Blue Heaven would like a word with your about copyright infringement.

A loss prevention worker at Walmart recognized Young from a previous situation. She followed him around the store and watched him in the self-checkout lane. The worker said Young also took a soda and fan from the shelf and returned them at customer service after showing workers there a photo of the receipt on his phone. (H/TMis.Hum.)

If there was any justice, the Kool-Aid man would blast through Bradley’s wall, beat the crap out of him, and bang his girlfriend… solely on principle.
