ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A train car load of beer was stolen from an Albany railroad yard Wednesday morning.  

490 cases of bottled Coors Lite, made at the Albany Plant, was stolen from a rail on Coastline Avenue. A couple of hours later, Albany Police pulled over 37-year-old Randy Price near the bus station on Oglethorpe.

They found beer in his truck, then searched his house on Highland Avenue and found 21 cases of beer. More than 450 cases are still missing, though.  

If you see anyone selling beer on the streets, call CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS, or the Albany Police.
