KILLEEN (April 30, 2013)—Police are looking for a big burglar after a break-in at a Killeen liquor store early Monday near the intersection of Old Florence Road and East Schlueter Loop

The owners of Lucky 7 Liquor, James and Patricia Ryan, posted security video of the burglar on the store’s Facebook page in hopes someone will recognize him.

The video shows the man breaking out the glass in the front door of the store early Monday morning and then squeezing under a bar through the shards.

At an estimated 300 pounds, it was a tight fit, but once inside the man scooped up bottles of whiskey from a nearby shelf and then attempted to make his way back through the door, dropping some of the bottles along the way.

Once outside, he got into his car and drove off.

Officers were sent to the store after a tow truck driver patrolling the area for illegally parked cars saw the man and called 911.

The damage to the door will more to repair than the value of the stolen liquor, Ryan said.
