MIRAMAR, Fla. (WSVN) -- A couple of "booze bandits" were caught on camera stealing bottles of liquor and hiding them in a very peculiar place.

One male accomplice can be clearly seen in a surveillance video at Countyline Liquors in Miramar distracting the clerk as a female puts several bottles of liquor up her dress.

The two male accomplices and the female thief can be seen on crystal clear video. However, the owner said he was suspicious but could not see the actual stolen bottles.

Liquor store owner Dallas Florence said, "I came in, and I look at the purse. And I was looking to see if I could see anything in the purse, but I couldn't see anything, and I had no idea she had it in her skirt. I looked up and down, and I couldn't see any kind of bulge or any kind of openings, and I made the choice to just let them go."

If you have any information on this theft, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
