The liquor store at 23rd and Union didn’t open early enough for one intoxicated man March 29. After hanging around outside the front doors for a couple minutes around 8:30 a.m., the man allegedly kicked in the glass door and stole a couple bottles of Paul Masson brandy.
Police found him nearby and arrested him. For future reference, the shop opens at 10 a.m. on Thursdays.
From the police report:
Speaking of the Union liquor store, the state auction for the store’s right to sell liquor goes until April 20. It is currently up to $60,000, the second highest in the state (rights to a shop in Greenwood is now up $64,000).
The shop was also featured in a recent video by CD artist and Garfield grad Sam Lachow:
