Jorge Sanchez, 35, allegedly dropped several bottles in the parking lot of a Costco store in Burbank as he tried to outrun store security agents.
Police told the Burbank Leader Sanchez dropped most of the two-dozen bulky bottles while scrambling over a chain-link fence.
Sanchez was arrested a short distance away on a suspicion of burglary charge.
Police reports said the arresting officer discovered the bungee cords wrapped around Sanchez's legs and waist, the Los Angeles Times said.
