Two men were arrested late Friday in Riga after fleeing a Mego supermarket with three stolen whiskey bottles, reports LETA.

The two had entered the store on Murjanu Street after 10 p.m. Friday. One of them attempted to divert attention, while the other grabbed the whiskey bottles. The security guard on duty noticed him, and immediately locked the exit doors. One of the men then pulled out an air gun and threatened the other people in the store. The two fled when the guard opened the door.

Local police were called in, and the two were tracked down. They had managed to consume one of the bottles in the interim.
