Resident arrested on suspicion of stealing wine
A 21-year-old Steamboat Springs man was arrested on suspicion of stealing a $23 bottle of wine from Mambo Italiano.
Michael Berj Keshian was outside in the patio area of the busy restaurant close to 1 a.m. Sunday. He reportedly opened a window, reached inside and stole an unopened bottle, said Steamboat Springs police Capt. Joel Rae.
Keshian then allegedly hid the bottle under his shirt and left, Rae said. When Keshian tried to come back into the restaurant with the same bottle of wine, he was arrested on charges of theft.
Keshian made his $120 bond at 10:10 a.m. Sunday.
