xmas beer robberWANTED IN TACOMA — On Christmas morning while most families were busy opening presents, cops in Tacoma said this armed, six-pack-stealing crook was opening up a cold one.

A surveillance photo snapped of the guy is pretty good, so maybe someone knows who he is. The suspect hit a Shell station near the Tacoma Mall, and the station’s employee told police that the guy just strolled in, grabbed the beer from the cooler and flashed a handgun to steal the six-pack.

Detectives think he is Asian and in his 20s and was wearing a recognizable “Miami Marlins” baseball hat.
