Who would dump 32 cases of beer in a rural southern Minnesota county?

Don't know. But the local sheriff's office is trying to find out.

The cases of Leinenkugel and Miller Lite beer were discovered around 9 a.m. Sunday at the Schilling Lake Boat Access in New Auburn Township, by a man walking his dog, the Sibley County Sheriff's Office posted on Facebook.

We count nine 24-packs of Miller Lite in this second photo provided:

And if each of the other cases found is a 12-pack, that'd be 492 bottles of beer – more than one for each of the 440 or so people living in the township.

Unlawfully depositing garbage or litter is a gross misdemeanor under Minnesota law.

The Sibley County Sheriff's Office is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call them at 1-888-880-4567.
