A man was arrested in Polk County after deputies say he tried to steal motor oil and DVDs from a gas station by putting them in his pants

The Polk County Sheriff's Office claims a Florida man tried to steal 15 Pennzoil bottles and 30 DVDs by shoving them into his trousers.

Surveillance video shared by the sheriff's office showed the man waddling out of the store, then back in after being intercepted by the detective. He allegedly went into the first aisle and hid 15 motor oil bottles in his "baggy blue jeans".

The whole incident was caught on security cameras.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office said a Florida man put bottles of Pennzoil and DVDs in his trousers in an attempt to steal them from a 7-Eleven.

A detective in an unmarked patrol auto was sitting outside watching the whole thing through the front window. The official could see everything Hall did, the statement said.

The detective escorted Hall back into the store, where Hall proceeded to unload his treasure trove of oil and movies from his trousers. Oh, and in case you're wondering (how could you not be?) the man managed his baggy pants-banditry by tucking the ends of his trousers into large work boots - allowing him to then stuff the aforementioned motor oil bottles and DVDs. He faces a charge of petit theft, his third such charge, making these charges a felony, according to the sheriff's office.
