Officer Kevin Yang thought he was doing some innocent food-lifting when he took a Monster energy drink from his break-room fridge that didn't belong to him.

But it wasn't the first time he had raided the fridge, and fellow cops in Deer Park, Texas, had had enough of the bandit's behavior — so they set up a hidden camera to catch him.

The officer was suspended — and faces misdemeanor theft charges. He'll be able to return to work, but has surely suffered the sting of viral-video humiliation.

The Deer Park police precinct isn't the only workplace dealing with not-so-petty pilfering. Watch the video to see the heinous thievery happening in TODAY's kitchen. And vote: Do you ever steal from your office fridge? (Don't worry; we won't tell).
