EL PASO — Police arrested two people in connection with an early morning beer run at a convenience store in Central El Paso.
Officers responded to the Chevron on Piedras near Yandell shortly before 2:30a.m. Wednesday, after the store clerk reported that a man and a woman tried to steal cans of beer from the store.
The man and the woman ran out of the store, but officers caught up with both of them a short time later. The store clerk said the man and woman both claimed to be underage.
The man had a pit bull with him, and officers had to call animal control to pick up the dog before the man was arrested.
The store clerk said no weapons were used.
