Beer thief wields shopping cart

Twice in recent weeks, a man has used a shopping cart to break through the front door of an Angola store early in the morning. Both times, he’s gotten away with beer, the Angola Police Department said.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in finding the burglar who, from surveillance video footage, appears to be white and in his 20s. During both break-ins, he was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black-and-white jogging pants and black-and-white tennis shoes, police said.

The thefts happened April 20 and May 11 at the Dollar General on West Maumee Street, police said.

Anyone with information about this case can call the Angola Police Department at 665-2121 or Steuben County Crime Stoppers at 668-7867.
