CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A thief managed to steal dozens of expensive bottles of alcohol from a Charlotte club early Sunday morning.

Surveillance video shows a man breaking into the liquor closet of the White House Nightclub just before 5 a.m. Sunday. Darin Morrow, the general manager of the club, said the thief was able to get away with more than $3,000 worth of alcohol. He said several bottles of top shelf liquor and expensive champagne were missing from the club inventory Sunday morning.

"He took about $3,500 worth of cost of alcohol and our sale value was probably double that," said Morrow in an interview Wednesday night.

The general manager said this isn't the first time the club has been broken into and he thinks the same person has been responsible for several of the break-ins.

"We're losing business every time he comes in here." said Morrow.

The thief was in the business approximately 20 minutes Sunday morning. Surveillance video shows him tampering with the locked alcohol cabinets and putting several bottles into boxes. His stash included 11 bottles of Hennessy VS,11 bottles of Patron Silver,15 bottles of Luc Belaire Luxe and 16 bottles of Moet Rose.

"The gentleman's probably taking the alcohol and selling it somewhere, trying to move it fast," explained Morrow.

The general manager said security is now being upgraded at the White House Nightclub. He hopes someone recognizes the person seen in the surveillance video and alerts police.

If you know anything about the club break-ins call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600. You won't have to leave your name, you won't be called into court and you could earn a substantial reward.
