Batavia PD is looking for the public's assistance in locating a man suspected of stealing a bottle of Jack Daniel's Honey from the YNGodess Shop on Main Street, Batavia.

Owner Christine Crocker reported the alleged theft to police last weekend after confronting a person she believes took a bottle of booze from the store. Crocker chased the man down and recovered a bottle of alcohol, but the man then fled.

Crocker said she had refused to sell liquor to the man, citing state law, because she believed he was already intoxicated.

The man in the photos is wanted for questioning in connection with the incident.

The suspect is described as a white male, thinner build, with a shaved head and a goatee. He was said to be wearing a dark zip-up jacket and white and black Nike sneakers.

The anonymous tip line for BPD is (585) 345-6370.

Tim, you apparently have not kept current with what the Twenty some crowd has been drinking. All the major distillers of spirits have been adding honey to their products.

Yeah - that and maple (Crown Royal Maple - YUK!)

Maybe that was his strategy... "C'mon - nobody in their right mind would steal *this*!"

Sadly, that works against him, too... "Yeah, but who in their right mind would *pay* for it?"

JD is rotgut horrible by itself. JD Honey is the raunchiest spirits to assault my taste buds in quite a while. I wonder why Colin Farrell is in Batavia stealing booze. He looks a bit gaunt. Another celebrity on the down slide...sigh.

Think he use to work at McDonalds in Leroy. Has not been there in months. I thought he, along with an older man had been arrested for pair of thefts, but can't find the article. Was on here I thought back in October/November of 2013 about the arrest.
