Beer snatcher

A brute shoved an employee who told him he couldn’t just take a beer for free from an Avenue X store on the evening of Feb. 11.

The robber came into the store near W. First Street at 6:20 pm and took one can of Bud Light out of the fridge, at which point the worker told him he needed to cough up $3 to pay for it, police reported.

The brute, refusing to pay, allegedly shoved and pushed the victim into the fridge yelling, “How can you stop me?” The suspect fled the store with the beer in hand at 6:24 pm, according to the report.

Phantom burglar

A burglar broke into a Bragg Street home sometime overnight on Feb. 7, taking cash and a credit card.

The victim told police he went to work at 5 pm on Feb. 7, and returned to his home near Avenue Y at 7 am the next day. When he got home he discovered someone broke the lock of the house’s back door.

The crook walked out of the house with an unknown amount of cash and the victim’s credit card, police reported.
