Florida Teen Cut a Hole in a Store's Roof to Steal Four Loko

Clerks at the Kwik King Food Store in Ocala, Florida, locked up for the night on March 19, and returned the next morning to discover that a hole had been cut in the store's ceiling and that several bottles of Monster energy drink and Four Loko were missing.

Turns out they'd been hit by the teenage boy master thief.

A news release from the Marion County Sheriff's Department is low on exactly how 15-year-old Jacob Cain Morris pulled off the heist, but he apparently had climbed in through the roof of the Kwik King.

A revue of security footage revealed the white teen lowering himself from the ceiling in baggy jeans and a t-shirt before making the energy drink steal. We're just surprised he didn't nab some Red Bull too to get some wings and fly himself out of there.

He did however make a clean escape.

Though, police were able to identify him, and discovered him a day later hiding in a vacant home.

Morris was charged with commercial battery and grand theft.
