Man steals $20 from liquor store

A robber stole $20 from a Brooklyn Park liquor store Monday, county police reported.

Investigators said a man walked into Village Liquors in the 700 PTC block of Church St. at 4 p.m., stepped to the front of the line and asked for two packs of cigarettes. When the clerk, who was handing change to a customer, told him to get at the end of the line, the man grabbed $20 and ran out of the store.
