Man Uses Empty Beer Case As Mask In Robbery
OMAHA, NE – He apparently had emptied his case of beer. Now, he just needed some smokes.
At 4:37 a.m. Monday, Lincoln police received a report of a robbery at the Kwik Shop near 44th and Cornhusker Highway.
The robber: A man wearing a Bud Light carton on his head.
He had something else — perhaps the plastic shrink wrap from the Bud Light case — wrapped around his hand. He claimed that was a weapon.
The man managed to steal several packs of cigarettes without bumping into anything, Lincoln police said.
He was described as skinny, 5 feet, 6 inches tall and square-headed.
