Dillon liquor store clerk closes shop to pursue alleged booze thieves
At about 9:45 p.m. Sunday, May 25, a clerk at Lake Dillon Liquors closed down the shop to pursue two unknown men who allegedly stole two bottles of liquor.
Before the two suspects fled the store, the clerk confronted the men, according to records. One of the men allegedly pushed the clerk to the ground, committing strong-armed robbery.
The clerk immediately locked the store and attempted to follow the suspects as they fled by car to Interstate 70, records stated. The clerk spotted a Dillon police officer that was in the midst of a traffic stop on I-70 and reported the alleged theft.
Dillon police officers attempted to pursue the alleged criminals, but were unable to locate them and make an arrest.
