Two local liquor stores, Plaza Wine and Spirits and Lamp Post Liquor, were victims of a pair of thieves with expensive champagne taste during a mid-day break on Monday, March 23, according to Ponca City Police.

Spokeswoman Sherry Bowers said two black males entered Plaza Wine and Spirits about 11:40 a.m. and left with two bottles of Dom Perignon champagne.

Less than an hour later, these two men left Lamp Post Liquor with another bottle of Dom Perignon, Bowers said.

She said police believe the two are construction workers, by the way they are dressed in the surveillance video. Similar thefts have occurred in Bartlesville, Blackwell and Nowata.
