latimes.com – By Lila Seidman – A woman wearing a glittery evening dress calmly strides behind the bar at a San Jose steakhouse and scans bottles of alcohol. She grabs one and walks out.
It was a pricey cognac — worth more than $4,000. The woman is suspected of felony grand theft, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities said the woman was with a group of people who dined at the Mount Hamilton GrandView restaurant Tuesday. As the party was leaving, the woman — clearly depicted in surveillance video — nabbed the bottle around 5 p.m., said Deputy Russell Davis, spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office.
