A 21-year-old San Luis Obispo man was arrested Friday afternoon after allegedly stealing booze from the CVS store on Marsh Street by telling employees he had a gun.
No gun was found and no one was injured in the incident.
At about 1:34 p.m., the Police Department received a report of a male who just stole alcohol from CVS at 717 Marsh St.
According to a department news release, he claimed to have a gun and fled the store on foot with an unspecified amount of alcohol.
Officers viewed the surveillance video at the store and identified Christian Shane Ellman as the suspect. Police found Ellman at about 2:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of Broad Street, and he was arrested without incident.
Jail records showed Ellman in San Luis Obispo County Jail custody late Friday in lieu of $60,000 bail.
