FRIENDSWOOD, TX — This Bud’s NOT for you! A beer burglar is stealing booze from garage refrigerators  near Houston in Friendswood.

Clearly, that doesn’t live up to the city’s friendly name.

In one of the beer runs, the burglar was kind enough to lock the garage door behind him. Awwww…

The same thing happened last year, until a 19-year-old man was arrested and charged with theft. No one knows if this summer’s crimes are related.

“It’s just ridiculous,” one neighbor said. “I can’t believe someone would do something so stupid.”

While beer theft might seem, well, petty, it the thefts were to expand to more valuable things, trouble could be brewing.
