Caught on camera: Liquor heist at Woodman’s Menomonee Falls

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A liquor heist was caught on camera at Woodman's in Menomonee Falls.

The incident occurred around 3 p.m. on April 8, according to a criminal complaint.

Police say the suspect, Matthew Kriz, had recently been fired from a beverage distributor.

Kriz went to Woodman's in his old work uniform, walked into the warehouse and stacked a hand truck with around $1,600 worth of alcohol.

Video surveillance shows him pile 12 bottles of Jameson, three bottles of Johnny Walker Black, six bottles of Hennessy Cognac and 24 bottles of Hennessy V.S.O.P. onto the hand truck before pushing it out of the main doors and loading it into a car.

Police contacted the man's former workplace, who identified him as the suspect.

Kriz's first court appearance is in late June.
