Police are asking for the public's help to catch the thieves who stole thousands of dollars worth of beer from a Montgomery distribution center Monday.Authorities believe the thieves gained access to a secure parking lot at the Lobo Beer Distribution Center. The thieves then used their own tractor to hook up to a loaded trailer and drive off, according to investigators.
Police say the stolen trailer contained up to $40,000 worth of beer.
Authorities believe the suspects then stole a tractor from the SLDC truck repair shop and planned to return to the distribution center. However, police say it appears they abandoned the vehicle because they may have been scared off.
