Skinny guy carries off a full keg of beer from Main Street restaurant

A person described as a skinny white man reportedly carried off a keg of beer from a Main Street restaurant, the police say, a feat given the weight of a full keg.

According to the Park City Police Department, the man was seen at 12:48 p.m. on March 3 carrying off the keg from behind the restaurant, on the 400 block of Main Street.

Lt. Phil Kirk says witnesses saw the man walking away from a freezer in the basement of the restaurant and toward Swede Alley. Kirk says a blue car, possibly a Subaru, pulled up as the man left.

The keg was loaded into the trunk, the suspect got inside and the car drove northbound on Swede Alley, the direction out of Old Town, according to Kirk.

The keg was full and contained Pabst Blue Ribbon , Kirk says. The police do not have a suspect.

"It’s going to be tough to solve — no a lot to go on," he says.
