Thieves steal 70 cases of beer from former Judas Priest singer Tim 'Ripper' Owens bar


Thieves stole $1500 worth of beer from a bar owned by former Judas Priest singer Tim 'Ripper' Owens in Akron, Ohio. 70 cases of beer was taken from a walk-in cooler.


He said: "It’s a really sad thing that someone had to do this. Any time you get ahead in a business and someone does this, it’s hard."

The bar, which also doubles as a gig venue, was set to host a wake on Saturday, so there was more stock than usual in the cooler. Owens added: "I don’t think it had anything to do with the event. I think it was probably an old employee or a regular who knew the cooler was back there and happened to steal that night."
