Camera catches crook cramming cold ones in coat

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Cameras caught a crook who crammed a case of cold ones in his coat, now police need the public’s help to find the suds-swiping sneak thief.

Shippensburg police said the man grabbed the case from the beer cave at Sheetz, at 359 East King Street, and walked out the door Thursday night without paying.

A surveillance photo released Friday shows the pilsners protruding from the packed jacket.

Police said a security officer saw the man get the case and go to a restroom. The security officer followed him, but he didn’t know the man placed the beer under his coat and soon saw the suspect leaving the store.

He was last seen walking toward North Queen and then toward East Burd, police said.

Anyone who can identify him is asked to call Shippensburg police at 717-532-7361.
