VISTA, CA (AP) - San Diego County sheriff's deputies say two men stole six beers from a Vista convenience store by stashing it under a blanket in the stroller they were using to push two children.
Sgt. Dave Perkins tells the North County Times the men walked up to the cash register Sunday afternoon and put potato chips on the counter. When a clerk asked about the beer in the stroller, the men left but another clerk got the license plate of their car.
Perkins says Luis Soto and Vincent Almonte, both 24, were arrested at an Oceanside home for investigation of robbery, commercial burglary, child endangerment, conspiracy and resisting arrest.
Perkins says the children were turned over to county child services. It wasn't known if the children were related to either man.
