Liquor Store Burglarized During Annapolis Power Outage

Someone broke the glass door and stole egg nog and cigarettes.

Someone broke the window and stole about $160 worth of goods from Gritz Liquor Store during a massive power outage in Annapolis on Thursday night, according to Annapolis police.

Officers responded to the store around 9:45 p.m. and found the glass door smashed and the alarm blaring. Police said they checked inside for the perpetrator but didn't find anyone.

When the store manager arrived on scene, he told police that two bottles of Evan Williams Egg Nog and 20 packs of Newport cigarettes were missing.

The power outage was caused when two of Baltimore Gas and Electric's (BGE) main feeder lines for the area went down, said spokeswoman Rachael Lighty. What brought down the two lines has yet to be determined.

BGE crews restored power to the downtown Annapolis area shortly before midnight.

Classic... 2 bottles of booze and enough cigs to last til the Mayans took our souls. At least the burglar only took what he/she needed...
