He must have a had a really tough time waking up.

An unidentified man recently tried to make off with a cart full of Red Bull from the Doylestown Acme, according to police reports.

A representative from the grocery store on North Main Street told police that someone tried to steal a cart full of the energy drink last week.

"I guess he needed some pep," Doylestown Borough Police Chief Jim Donnelly said Thursday.

Produced by an Austrian companyRed Bull claims the drink increases concentration and reaction speed, among other things.

The would-be thief was unsuccessful in his attempt. Donnelly said store employees chased the man, who dropped the Red Bull and ran off.

The Red Bull was valued at $320.05, according to police reports. 

The suspect was described as a man in his early 20s. He was last seen wearing a white baseball cap, heavy brown coat, and jeans, police said.

The incident happened on Thursday, Jan. 17 at about 8:40 a.m.

No word on whether the suspect resorted to a cup of coffee instead.
