2 arrested in Phoenix serial 'beer run' operation

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Police have arrested two people suspected in at least 40 separate "beer runs" at Phoenix convenience stores.

Authorities say 43-year-old Jeffrey Webb and 30-year-old Keara Quijada were taken into custody Thursday on suspicion of re-selling stolen beer.

Phoenix police field officers worked with Circle K's Corporate Loss Prevention to identify Webb and Quijada after police learned about a serial "beer runner" operation.

Police say the two were put under surveillance after being identified.

They say Webb and Quijada were seen taking five 30-packs of beer from a Circle K on Wednesday. Officers followed them to a home after ensuring they hadn't paid for the liquor.

Once the pair left the home, they were pulled over and arrested. Police found 26 cases of beer inside the house.
