Cops: Packing Packers fan steals juice from Atlanta gas station


A man who walked into a northeast Atlanta gas station last week apparently had no intention of paying for his drink.

The man, wearing an Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers jersey, took a Minute Maid juice from the drink cooler at a Shell gas station on Sept. 7, according to police.

“When the suspect was approached by the cashier, the suspect lifted his shirt and showed a gun that was in his waistband,” Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta said.

The Shell is located at 496 Plasters Ave. NE.
