FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Three men are accused of being involved in the theft of more than $4,000 of alcohol from Kroger from October 2013 to February 2014.

According to affidavits for probable cause, Deandre J. Williams, Jamarcus A. Tucker, and Marcus C. Boone are accused of being involved in racketeering activity, including a series of thefts or attempted thefts from Kroger stores. All three are facing a felony charge of theft and a felony charge of corrupt business influence.

The accused thieves are said have hidden as many as five bottles of liquor in coat jackets at one time or just walked out of the store with baskets full of alcohol.

The affidavits for probable cause outline 18 incidents in which more than $100 of alcohol was stolen from Kroger. The locations of the Kroger stores are redacted from the documents.

Williams is also accused of damaging a set of locked doors trying to pry them open. He gave up and left the store without any alcohol that day, according to court documents. On another day, he put apparently down two bottles he was carrying and left the store when he saw an officer watching him.

Below is the list of incidents outlined in the court documents.
