So we have a drink thief here in my office.

The employees feel like they know who is to blame, and one of the girls here is pregnant and her drinks have been the ones stolen most often. So, to avoid a potentially volatile situation, what can I do to catch this person?

Ideas?

I already know about the Visine trick, too dangerous.

We have a food/drink thief in our office too. He ate half of my sandwich!!!!!!!!!!! and when I buy 2 liter drinks and put them in the fridge i have coworkers tell me they saw him drinking out of it!!! I confronted him but he lies to me about it. I just stopped buying 2 liters and i put note with threats on my food.

I thought you were referring to the idea it makes you have the runs...it just kills you instead.

You need to put some ink on a drink or sandwich and then have the guy fired when he gets caught.

And bang his wife too.

You need a group of people you know aren't stealing the drinks.

Get some of the pratical joke dye/power that turns your mouth black when you injest it.

Spike all the drinks in the fridge until the culprite is caught with black mouth.
The hummiliation alone should end the problem.

This will also prevent others from having drinks in the fridge until the teff is caught.
