MANATEE, Fla., Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida say a man accused of stealing beer, wine and steaks from a Walmart store told deputies he was trying to "impress a lady."

The Manatee County Sheriff's Office said a loss prevention officer spotted James Flenniken, 48, taking the $79.30 worth of items from the Manatee store about 5 p.m. Monday, the Bradenton Herald reported Wednesday.

Flenniken told deputies he took the items in an attempt to "impress a lady."

Flenniken was taken to the county jail on a misdemeanor shoplifting charge.
