MILWAUKIE, Ore — Some local liquor stores have their guard up after they say they've been hit several times by the same shoplifters.

The manager of Milwaukie Liquor says the two were caught on camera stealing three high priced bottles.

You can see the man in blue putting a bottle in his coat and later an accomplice comes next to him and slips a bottle in the shopping bag.

“We all have jobs. If the owner is losing money it just hurts everyone. It hurts the customers if enough stuff is stolen… could jack up the prices all around to compensate for it,” Kevin Johnston

Oak Grove Liquor believes the same suspects were seen on their surveillance video earlier this month swiping some bottles.

At one point, one suspect raises a bottle over his head and allegedly threatens to hit an employee.
