Keystone thief: Burglar breaks into liquor store, takes cheap beer, police say


Usually, when someone breaks into a liquor store to swipe some booze, they take the expensive stuff.

But that's apparently not what happened at Some Beach Liquor in Hibbing early Wednesday.

The Hibbing Police Department says a burglar smashed a window, entered the store – and took three cases of Keystone beer.

About 11 hours after asking for help on Facebook, the Hibbing police issued another update, saying a suspect has been identified and arrested.
