Thieves Steal Beer, Meat and Big Screen TV

It may be a coincidence, or someone may be planning a party. Police say burglars have stolen beer, frozen meat and a big screen television in three separate incidents over the past few days. The beer theft took place Saturday night at a golf tournament being held at the Cookeville Golf Club. Someone broke into a Budweiser truck there and made off with 1oo cases of beer. The loss was placed at $2,200. Meanwhile, a resident of Maple Trace told police that someone broke into his garage and stole 40 pounds of meat from a freezer. They also took several power tools. And, on West Broad Street, a resident reported that the back door of his apartment had been kicked in and a 52-inch television stolen. Investigation is continuing.
