A recent survey revealed that wine drinkers tend to be better educated than the average Joe. But there are exceptions to every rule.
Given the fact that many criminals are not necessarily the smartest people on the planet, if the survey I mentioned earlier is correct, it would stand to reason that wine would not be the thug beverage of choice. Well, that wasn’t the case with one parolee in Barrington, New Hampshire.
Apparently, the 34 year old male who was on probation walked into a Walgreens in the town of Lee and walked out with bottles of wine… forgetting that wine is something you have to pay for.
Upon examining the surveillance video, police noticed something unusual. The suspect was wearing an ankle bracelet… the kind that tells the probation department exactly were you are at any given moment. And I’m thinking if I’m a little dot on a GPS screen, I’m not going to go looking for a five finger discount at Walgreens. And were I a thief willing to risk arrest for stealing wine, I’m going to the very best wine shop I can find.
While I am often pleasantly surprised by the nice selection of wines sold in places like Walgreens these days, there is one very popular premium brand that I have never seen on their shelves. It’s called, THE PRISONER.
