A man who apparently likes Red Bull energy drink, especially when he doesn’t pay for it, was arrested early Sunday by Northwest District police.

Jose Vega, 34, of East Tupper Street, was picked up at about 1:30 a.m. on West Eagle Street and charged with two counts of petit larceny.

Police said Vega walked out of a 7-Eleven store Friday on Ontario Street with 15 cans of Red Bull that he hadn’t paid for. Lt. Patrick Humiston reported that he also charged Vega on Sunday in connection with a theft of $80 worth of Red Bull from the same store on Feb. 18.
