The second break in occurred around 1:40 a.m., St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said, adding that it looks like the same individual from the night before.

“(He) broke a window, went in, he knew exactly what he wanted, took a couple bottles of rum,” Despain said, “and left.”

Despain said the thief committed the crime very quickly.

“On the second one, specifically, our officers were there very quick,” Despain said, “but he was in and out so fast.”

Despain acknowledged that the surveillance pictures are not the best, but said, “we don’t have a lot to go on.”

Anyone who recognizes the individual in the picture or may have any information on the case, is asked to call the St. George Police Department at 435-627-4300.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.

    So the idiot didn’t like being made fun of for only taking one bottle the first time, he went back and took TWO bottles. Super smart of him. He looks like a kid.
