Man stuffs 15 bottles of oil, 30 DVDs in pants during theft at 7-Eleven


WFLA – Investigators said a man who was wearing baggy blue jeans managed to stuff 15 bottles of Pennzoil motor oil and 30 DVDs down his pants before walking out of a 7-Eleven store in Lakeland, Florida, last week.

Unfortunately for the thief, a Polk County Sheriff's Office detective happened to be parked outside and saw the whole thing happen.

After the man walked out of the store he walked past the detective, who was sitting in an unmarked vehicle.

Detective Phil Ryan said he got out of his car and confronted William Jason Hall, 38, and told him to remove all the items from his pants.
