Four Canadian Beer Trucks Go Missing: 12,000 Cases of Corona Grabbed by Crooks

Ontario police are looking for thieves who made off with four tractor trailer loads of beer from a Cobourg parking lot.

Police have located three of the four missing trucks, but none of the 12,000 cases of Corona and Corona Extra Light that were on board. The beer is worth about $470,000.

It is believed the beer bandits struck on Saturday between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Police say that some other trucks parked in the lot had been broken into. They are investigating why the beer laden trailers had been left together in the lot.

It is a little late for Cinco de Mayo, but somewhere someone is having a party.

I don't care WHAT they say, Corona is not worth half a million dollars.
