MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Myrtle Beach Police have arrested a man after he allegedly stole two cans of Four Loko and then tried to flee on a bicycle Friday evening.

According to a police report, officers responded to the Circle K located at 1100 N. Kings Hwy around 5:30 p.m. in reference to a shoplifting. When they arrived, they spoke with a clerk who said a white male had stolen two Four Loko beers after purchasing one and left the store on a bicycle.

The clerk described the suspect as wearing a green jacket, a USC Gamecocks hat and jeans. He reportedly fled in the area of Mister Joe White Avenue.

Not long later, officers detained 42-year-old Robert Lee Gore, Jr. of Myrtle Beach, who fit the description of the suspect near Mister Joe White Avenue and Oak Street.

A check of Gore's criminal history revealed he has been convicted of shoplifting twice in the past 10 years. He was charged with shoplifting value less than $2,000.
