Albany--  A stolen beer trailer is recovered in Albany, minus half of the evidence.

A big trailer full of Amheiser Bush beer was stolen from the Millis Transfer yard in Albany. Wednesday, one of the drivers was passing by a business plaza at the corner of Oakridge and Westover and spotted the missing trailer.

Of course when it was found, several pallets of beer were missing.

"It doesn't happen that often. In fact, this is the first time I can remember that Amheiser had something that was missing but once in a while, something does go missing," said Frank Wright.

The trailer was supposed to be delivered to Albany Beverage. Some tipsy crooks made sure that didn't happen.
