Beer Bandit Surrenders to Police

by Ramonica R. Jones

A man known by police as the 'beer bandit' has turned himself in. The arrest of 29-year-old Kenneth Wars came just hours after the East Texas News aired a report on several beer thefts around town.

Police have charged Wars with one count of theft, but more charges could be added. Wars is suspected of stealing cases of beer around Lufkin over the past two weeks.

Authorities believe Wars is the man seen in several different surveillance videos walking into at least five convenience stores, grabbing a case of beer, and taking off in a white pickup.
