Three Houston men steal $4,200 liquor bottle that turns out to be cheap decoy (Video)

Three men are currently in trouble after falling for a cheap decoy liquor bottle they probably thought was real.

Authorities in Houston, Texas, are haunting for three men caught on camera robbing a liquor store and running off with a cheap decoy liquor bottle they presumably believed to be real.

The Houston Police Department just released the video though the incident took place in the afternoon on May 23. Police says that was the day these three unidentified Black males walked into a liquor store and crowded around a locked display case of alcohol, KRIV-TV reported.

The men then reportedly asked about a $4,200 bottle that was in the case and an employee of the store came over and unlocked the case.

One of the men then grabbed the bottle while another one of the men grabbed another box of the same liquor.

The store says that the box, which the man dropped before exiting, was empty and the bottle that was taken was a decoy bottle that was worth far less than $4,200.

Reports say the three men are still at large.

Based on the information given by authorities, one of the suspects was wearing a white pullover, black shorts, a white cap, and white shoes. The second suspect was wearing a black Nike pullover, dark shorts, and blue shoes.

The third suspect had a visible goatee and wore a black jacket with blue jeans.

A cash reward of up to $5,000 is being offered by Crime Stoppers of Houston for any information leading to an arrest.
