TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say two men are in custody for allegedly shoplifting beer from Tucson convenience stores as many as 100 times this year.

Tucson police 35-year-old Robert Bowman and 29-year-old Raymond Monday have been booked into Pima County Jail on suspicion of organized retail theft.

Police say the two men were suspected of stealing four 30-packs of beer from a midtown Circle K.

The Arizona Daily Star says police believe the pair might be connected to between 75 to 100 beer skips.

Police say the shoplifted beer was sold at a home at a discounted price.

Authorities didn’t immediately provide information Thursday on whether either Bowman or Monday had lawyers for their cases.
