Beer Kegs Being Stolen in Rehoboth Beach

Posted:

 

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Beer kegs are disappearing from restaurants in Rehoboth Beach, and police say it's no magic trick.
 
Rehoboth Beach Police say as many as sixty beer keg containers have been stolen in a string of thefts at businesses along Rehoboth Avenue. 
 
Rehoboth Police Chief Keith Banks says the likely motivation is selling the empty containers for scrap metal.
 
"Scrap metal prices are up," said Chief Banks. "Unfortunately, thefts like this do tend to occur, sometimes to fuel drug habits."
 
At the Dogfish Head Restaurant, workers say they take empty kegs out back and chain them up to prevent theft. However, a recent Monday morning, workers arrived and found thirty to fifty kegs gone and the chain snapped in two.
