A thief with “good taste” attempted a heist at a Whole Foods in San Francisco on Monday, police said.
The man went into the store at California and Franklin streets around 8:30 p.m. and placed some hummus, smoked Gouda, havarti, pepperoni and salami into his messenger bag, cops said.
He then sauntered over to the wine aisle and filched a bottle of $25 pinot noir.
As he left, security stopped him and called police.
The elegant thief was cited for petty theft and released from the scene, cops said.
