Arrest in Bar Theft

Uniondale (WALK) - Police in Nassau say they've caught up with a booze thief.

They've arrested a man who allegedly swiped liquor and beer from a bar near his home. Niles Thompson of Uniondale entered the basement of the Classico Bar on Jerusalem Avenue on September 5th and carted off cases of booze, along with cash and a hand truck, through a cellar door, according to investigators.

Police say they nabbed Thompson, 26, with the help of a security camera that captured the theft on videotape. He was arrested at his home on Monday.

Thompson was arraigned yesterday on three burglary counts.
