A man who stole booze twice in one afternoon from the same convenience store was arrested Wednesday.

Nathaniel Francisco, 39, was booked into the Pima County jail and faces one count each of shoplifting, criminal damage, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, said Deputy Courtney Rodriguez, spokeswoman for the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

Detectives were looking for him after he stole from the same store twice July 16.

Just after 2 p.m., Francisco entered the Circle K at 3280 W. Valencia Road at South Camino de la Tierra on the southwest side, walked behind the counter and took a bottle of alcohol, according to a news release from the sheriff's department. Four hours later, he returned, took some beer and left without paying.
