Crime brief: Liquor stolen on Christmas Eve

Two men stole a few bottles of booze from a local liquor store on Christmas Eve.

It all happened in less than a minute, according to the police report. On Dec. 24, at about 7:20 p.m., two men in their early 20s and dressed in dark clothing walked into Bailey Liquors, located at 570 N. Shoreline Blvd., grabbed some bottles of rum and tequila and then fled on foot.

The clerk didn't get a good look at the men, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer with the Mountain View Police Department.

I'd guess they were previous customers who knew the layout of the "over the counter" booze in that place.

The people who hang out in front of that place scratching their lotto tickets can sometimes be a formidable bunch.
