Police are looking for two people who they believe stole an “unknown quantity” of alcohol from BevMo in San Luis Obispo early Monday morning.

The crime happened about 2:50 a.m. at the BevMo at 1502 Froom Ranch Road, police said. When officers arrived, they found broken glass near the front door and a damaged back door, which had been forced open.

The two people police suspect of burglarizing the business fled south on Los Osos Valley Road in a silver Dodge minivan with paper dealer plates, according to a news release from the San Luis Obispo Police Department. One of the suspects is described as a Hispanic man of large build who is light-skinned, heavy set and has a “scruffy” dark beard.

The suspects’ minivan was caught on surveillance video at a nearby gas station, police said, and a BevMo employee provided a photo from a previous burglary that matched the description of the suspect.
