Men Drive Forklift Through Store Wall, Steal Beer
Taking advantage of finding a forklift with the keys in the ignition outside a general store building in West Linn, Oregon, an unknown number of unknown individuals decided that, being Christmas and all, they are entitled to a little bit of beer.
Since the store itself was closed last weekend, the two used the forklift to break through one of the store's wood-frame walls. Once inside, they ignored all other goodies around, got their beer and off they were to enjoy it somewhere.
The store owner is convinced that everything else remained untouched and said that clearly the burglars were after beer alone. The local police seem to agree.
"I guess it was a Christmas Day beer run,” Sgt. David Kempas from the West Linn police department joked with oregonlive.com reporters. "The lesson here should be not to leave your keys in the forklift. You don't want to make it easy for anyone."
The beer thieves remain at large and are to be considered extremely dangerous when low on beer. Since there were no witnesses around when the incident happened, it's very difficult for police to give an accurate description of the suspects.
You should be on a lookout though for anyone carrying a six-pack and trying to hide it.
