Police: Beer thief didn’t get far
Police in Florida said they arrested a homeless man accused of stealing several bottles of beer and a cooler from a yacht club bar.
Daytona Beach police spokesman Jimmie Flynt said Scott Riley, 28, allegedly broke into the Halifax River Yacht Club's Tiki Bar Sunday night and took the beer and cooler to a shrub across the street from the club, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Wednesday.
Flynt said police found Riley passed out in the shrub next to the bottles and cooler, which was labeled
Halifax River Yacht Club.
Riley was arrested charged with burglary. He was taken to the Volusia County Branch Jail in lieu of $2,500 bail. Flynt said investigators believe Riley may be linked to another nearby burglary.
