Beer used as weapon in Pueblo gas station heist

PUEBLO, Colo. – Bud Light may not be advertising these two as “Real Men of Genius.”

Two men in Pueblo are accused of using an 18-pack case of Bud Light as a weapon while stealing beer at a Loaf ‘N Jug convenience store.

Twenty-three-year-old Dominic Julian Lujan and 20-year-old Demetrio Junior Rivera are accused of stealing three cases of Bud Light from the store early Saturday. According to police, one of the men used a case of the beer to hit a clerk during the theft. The clerk wasn’t seriously hurt.

Police officers chased the suspects on foot. The affidavit said police found two cases of beer in a back yard, then went inside and found Lujan and Rivera. The men are awaiting court appearances.
