Thieves take 80 bottles of alcohol from Hilton Head restaurant

Beaufort County Sheriff's Office deputies are looking for three male suspects in the theft of about 80 bottles of alcohol from a Hilton Head Island restaurant on Sunday night.

Deputies were called to Skull Creek Boathouse on Squire Pope Road on Monday around 8 a.m. when an employee noticed a large amount of alcohol missing from the restaurant's outside bar, according to the Sheriff's Office report.

When deputies reviewed the restaurant's security footage, three white males are seen entering the bar before one of them turned the security camera away, the report said.

Deputies found tire tracks, a red dolly and several foot prints leading away from the restaurant toward a nearby parking lot.

An empty bottle of vodka was also located floating in a nearby pond.

The 80 bottles were valued at $1,451, the report said.
