The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

Two Mary­land men have been charged with tak­ing more than $21,000 worth of al­co­hol from trucks parked at a county fa­cil­ity.

Mont­gomery County Po­lice said that the al­co­hol was stolen from trucks parked at the Depart­ment of Liquor Con­trol ware­house in Gaithersburg.

The Depart­ment of Liquor Con­trol re­ported more than half a dozen thefts from Fe­bru­ary to May. Dur­ing a theft May 28, Depart­ment of Liquor Con­trol se­cu­rity saw a sus­pect on video and called po­lice.

Po­lice ar­rested the driver — Jean Au­guste, 27, of Lan­ham — and Liquor Con­trol em­ployee Kelvin Eu­gene Snow­den Jr., 31, in the case.
