VACAVILLE, Calif., June 6 (UPI) -- Authorities in California said five suspects accused of stealing $4,700 worth of Red Bull from various stores failed to sprout wings for their unsuccessful getaway.

The Vacaville Police Department said in a Facebook post that witnesses reported seeing the quintet fleeing a grocery store with a cart-load of energy drinks they had failed to pay for and the group loaded their ill-gotten cans into the back of a rented U-Haul van.

A Vacaville officer spotted the van on Interstate 80 and conducted a traffic stop, the post said.

Five suspects, four men and a juvenile, were taken into custody and police discovered the U-Haul van was filled with Red Bull cans stolen from various grocery stores in the area. The cache of Red Bull was worth a total $4,700, police said.

The suspects were all Oakland residents, police said.

Ronnie Yarbrough, 30, was arrested for burglary, possession of stolen property, conspiracy, probation violation and driving with a suspended license.

Torn Saelee, 19, Jafar Neal, 29, and Jabari Neal, 29, were arrested on charges of burglary, possession of stolen property and conspiracy.
