David Rahn Barwinski

A man didn’t pay for the about $100 of iced coffee he jammed down his pants Sunday night, Gainesville Police said.

David Rahn Barwinski, 61, of Gainesville, is accused of walking in and out of Circle K, at 1515 N Main St., three times with various Starbucks Frappuccinos and Dunkin Donuts espresso drinks in his hands, pockets and the front of his pants without paying, according to the arrest report.

Barwinski walked in Circle K around 9 p.m., took the drinks and walked out without paying, the report said. He put the drinks in his car and walked back in the store again.

A customer told two employees about Barwinski when he shoved coffee down his pants and in his pockets again, police said. An employee called police as Barwinski put the drinks in his car.

Barwinski walked into the store for a third time but was confronted by an employee when he tried to leave without paying, the report said. The employee told police Barwinski said he forgot to pay for one drink, placed a bottle on the counter and walked out.

When an employee followed him to his car and told him to return the coffee, Barwinski yelled, “F--- you!”

When police arrived, officers found a car littered with Starbucks Frappuccinos and Dunkin Donuts coffee drinks but no receipts.

After he was read his Miranda rights, Barwinski told police he bought the coffee at a different store and later said he bought some of the coffee from the Circle K.

Barwinski was charged with theft and was banned from Circle K, the report said. He was released from Alachua County Jail early Monday morning without bond.
