AKRON, Ohio — Dozens of tips from the public helped the Summit County Sheriff's Office quickly identify all four people who were caught on camera allegedly entering a closed banquet area at Pick's at Portage Lakes, then stealing and drinking liquor and beer.

The female seen on camera will not face any charges. Summit County Inspector Bill Holland said she saw the video and called in to identify herself. Police determined that she was just lost and looking for her friends.

The three men seen on camera are all of legal age - 22 and 21 years old, Holland said, and have addresses in Alliance and Akron.

Holland said it is uncertain if anyone will be charged — that is up to the business owner. If anything, they will face theft charges for taking the alcohol.
