Mistake two: leaving the stolen wine behind during a home rip-off.
Police in Bend, Oregon, report those clues led them to a pair of suspects.
Officers say they were investigating a break-in, when the homeowner said a bottle of wine in the house wasn't his.
A local TV station reports police checked surveillance video at a nearby convenience store.
Authorities say the tape led them to a shoplifting suspect.
That suspect and another man have been busted on theft and burglary charges.
