(Newser) – Police in central New Jersey are seeking a thief who apparently appreciates the finer things in life. Linden police say a shoplifter stole a bottle of Remy Martin Louis XIII cognac, valued at $2,849, from Pied Piper Liquors on May 16th. Police say the store's owner reviewed surveillance video, which showed the man remove the lock from a cabinet and take the bottle. The owner told police the man has been in the store in the past and has taken bottles of liquor without paying for them. (An Oregon man was arrested for allegedly stashing a toy helicopter in a kilt modified for shoplifting.)
