This just in from the Billings Police Department Twitter:

Tonight around 7:25pm, a male described to be Native American in their early 20's, 5 foot 7 inches tall, with a heavy build and shaggy black hair in an off white coat attempted to steal beer at the 500 block of Central Avenue.

According to Police, when the suspect was confronted, he brandished a handgun and fled with the prized beer.

The investigation is ongoing, according to Sgt Mansur.

I presume the suspect is likely enjoying his beer, and hope he at least got the good stuff. It would be a shame if he got some cheap, light beer.

We'll update the article when more details are released.
