Police said a thirsty thief helped himself to the liquor cabinet at a Florida tiki bar, but he couldn’t help himself evade capture.

According to an arrest report, 42-year-old Kevin Wayne Armstrong was found passed out next a bottle of rum on the floor behind the outdoor bar at the Getaway, a popular bayside spot in St. Petersburg. 


Armstrong later told detectives he had stumbled across the bar while out on a nightly stroll and decided to help himself to some booze.

Police found a 750 ml bottle of Ron Viejo De Caladas Rum next to Armstrong’s passed out body and a 750 ml bottle of Papa’s Pilar rum in a garbage bag, which police said he intended to take with him.

Armstrong was arrested on a charge of burglary; structure unoccupied (commercial).

He’s being held at the Pinellas County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
