On November 30, 2012 at approximately 6:41 p.m. the adult Suspect George Bjurberg and a Juvenile co-conspirator walked into Lucky’s located at 1133 Old County Road in San Carlos. The two Suspects walked directly into the liquor aisle where the Bjurberg began stuffing alcohol bottles into the pockets of his trench coat while the Juvenile Suspect stood watch.

After concealing the alcohol bottles the Suspects walked directly toward the exit doors.
