Liquor store burglarized overnight

Advertisement

A burglar used a concrete rabbit to smash the door of a liquor store overnight in central Lawrence and made off with an undetermined amount of alcohol.The burglary at Neighborhood Liquors, 1906 Mass. - formerly known as Mom & Pops - was reported by a passerby about 8:25 a.m. this morning. The thief apparently used a wastebasket inside the store to cart off an unknown amount of liquor, including bottles of premium tequila, owner Mike Myers said.An initial report listed the items stolen as worth $180, but Myers said it could be more than that. There have been at least two other forced-entry burglaries at liquor stores reported this year in Lawrence:¢ In January, police released [a surveillance photo][1] of a man suspected of breaking into Spirit Liquor, 600 Lawrence Ave. He was later identified, arrested and sentenced to probation.¢ On Aug. 20, someone broke into Harper Corner Liquor around 5:20 a.m. and stole five bottles of E & J Brandy.-contributed by [Eric Weslander.][2] [1]: http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2006/jan...

It's not even the best Brandy in the Brandy section, let alone the best, most expensive spirit in the store.

That's like risking prison for Night Train or Boone's Farm (do they still make that???)

=============================================

Funny story.

Went into a liquor store and went back to the foreign beer section.

It happened to be next to the screwtops.

Night Train was going for $1.00 American at the time.

I had to ask:

"What does a $1 bottle of wine taste like??"

The clerk says: "Like a bad bourbon"

"It's a wine" sez I.

The clerk says: "I know".

I shuddered uncontrollably for about three seconds.

Never had it. I feel forewarned.

Who in their right mind would steal E&J Brandy??? Grey Goose, maybe. Louis XIII, definitely. But E&J???

Obviously the store need only be booby-trapped with Holy Hand Grenades and this bunny situation will be resolved.

Thanks.

Mom and Pops will be next on the list to shut down by the commish! It is an eye-sore, on a state highway, and an embarassment to have it on Mass....Right?

Give the guy a break, I'm sure he was just thirsty from the trip to Lawrence from Topeka. Give him a class on animal cruelty and call it a day.

Leave Mom & Pop's alone! Why didn't Dash protect the store?

Theft of Ta-Kill-Ya, and no one posts any inappropriate racial remarks.

Maybe there's hope for us, after all.

Must of been an 'inside' job, when's the last time anyone saw a concrete rabbit jump thru glass? I'll bet the culprit is still within a 4 block radius of the 'smash and grab'.

Was the concrete rabbit something that Yellow House had been unable to sell?

"¢ On Aug. 20, someone broke into Harper Corner Liquor around 5:20 a.m. and stole five bottles of E & J Brandy."

Is this a MadTV or SNL skit? Come on, this can't be for real.
"Awe yea! We gonna do'it up rite this mo'nin' baby!"

At least the first one is funny--well as funny as breaking someone else's door and stealing their liquor can be. The guy used a concrete rabbit. Can't you just picture it? Too bad he didn't drop it on his foot--then the cops could just go to the hospital and look for the guy with the busted foot whe reeked of tequila.
