From the Times-Picayune’s Michelle Hunter.
Someone broke into the New Orleans Zephyrs baseball stadium in Metairie last week and stole a Coors Light beer truck containing 51 kegs of brew, according to a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office incident report. A groundskeeper for the team discovered break-in Thursday morning when he arrived at the stadium at 6000 Airline Drive. The thieves made off with the truck, $3,061 worth of beer and more than $10,000 in groundskeeping equipment, the Sheriff’s Office report said.
The burglars didn’t crack the team’s offices, but Zephyrs General Manager Mike Schline called the theft of the beer truck baffling.
“I think everybody thought, ‘What kind of idiots did this?’ ” he said Tuesday. “You would think somebody who was going to break into a place like this would try to be subtle. … We couldn’t believe somebody was leaving the stadium driving a beer truck. I don’t know where they thought they were going to go with it.”
Sounds like an inside job to me, perhaps someone with keys to the joint…a disgruntled former employee?
Dave Williams, say it ain’t so.
