LAKE HAVASU, AZ - Mohave County Sheriff's deputies on Monday arrested a 47-year-old man with no pants who had shoplifted from a convenience store north of Lake Havasu City.

The incident reportedly happened in the 14800 block on Highway 95 near Interstate 40.

Steven Leo Briones was arrested around 2 a.m. Monday after the convenience store manager reported that a man drank a bottle of milk in the store, grabbed additional items and went into the restroom.
