This is an early leader for the dumbest crook of the year with beer in a supporting role. The story comes from Myrtle Beach, S.C., making it all the more fun.
Police allege Kevin J. Jackson, 31, tried to take an 18-pack of Budweiser from the Scotchman on Third Avenue in the ocean side community without paying on Saturday morning.
An employee of the store says he confronted Jackson after spotting a large bulge in the front of his pants. Jackson left the scene, but police soon caught up to him and took him to the Myrtle Beach Jail.
Jackson was arrested and charged with shoplifting.
