A twelve-person jury has started deliberations in the brewery burglary case.
Michael Rae of Juneau is accused of stealing a convenience store van and crashing it into a door at Alaskan Brewing Company so he could grab some beer last April.
Closing arguments were held Friday morning in Juneau Superior Court.
Prosecutors say they have video footage of the Breeze-In truck going back and forth between the brewery and Rae’s residence in Switzer Village.
Rae’s defense says the prosecution’s main witness is not credible and there’s no solid proof that Rae did the crime.
