The warrant stems from a complaint filed by back in July 2011, police said. According to the arrest report, Ahrens turned 21 years old in September and, therefore, was underage when the alleged crime occurred.

Ahrens and another party, who were former employees of the store, were allegedly stealing both alcohol and money, according to police. More than $1,000 was stolen over a period of four days, police said.

Ahrens was released after posting $5,000 bond. He is due in court May 15.
