Unable to purchase it, three men steal beer from CVS

prwilliambeer.jpg

There are probably many people who can sympathize with this problem: You go into a Virginia convenience store after midnight looking to buy beer and you're told you're out of luck. Though the beer is sitting right there, they can't sell it to you because of state law.

A clerk at a CVS in Dale City told three men that very thing at 1:50 a.m. on Tuesday when they came inside and grabbed cases of beer. Instead of putting them down after being told they couldn't purchase it, one of the men pulled out a handgun while the other two ran out of the store with the beer. The clerk was not injured.

Prince William County police are looking for the three men, who were captured on surveillance video as they entered the store at 4338 Dale Boulevard. They are all described as black men, ages 20-25, approximately 5-foot-10, with medium builds.

Anyone with information about the armed robbery is asked to call Prince William County Crime Solvers at 703-670-3700 or 866-411-TIPS. Callers can leave tips anonymously and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

Wow that description narrows it down. We all might get arrested this weekend in VA.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Seriously, if they had just walked out with the beer, the charges would be significantly less. I'm just glad the clerk was unharmed.

Find these idiots, and lock them away for a long time.

Dale City is now just an extension of PG County.

checkered1 how can you compare Dale City with P.G. Co.,Dale City is a boring dump. If these three morons had been in P.G. they could have gone to Tick Tock - DUH...

It continues to perplex me how people remain so ignorant of the fact that the majority of businesses nowadays have video surveillance - especially an establishment such as CVS. If you're going to stick a place up for crying out loud at least make an attempt to follow rule #1 which is wear a freaking mask.

These guys look like mofos from PG county. I wonder if they drove off in a ghetto rimmed Ford Crown Victoria.
