Law enforcement is looking for information on one individual who may have stolen 3,500 cases of beer in Glendale.

Detectives from the 104th Precinct are looking for the whereabouts of a man who they believe brewed up quite a caper on the Ridgewood/Glendale border: stealing approximately 3,500 cases of beer from a idle train car on a freight rail line.

Police said the grand larceny occurred at around 5 p.m. on Dec. 19 near the intersection of Cody and Cypress Avenue, near a train overpass, with a possibly only one male involved with no description.

Surveillance images that the 104th Precinct tweeted out on Jan. 2 show the vague figure of a man through a thicket, but no discernible details of the person’s features can be gleaned from the images.

According to the NYPD, at least 350 of the cases stolen were Corona brand; the entire shipment was valued at about $100,000.

The New York & Atlantic Railway did not immediately return a request for comment and the 104th Precinct’s Community Affairs Unit were not available by phone for additional details as to how one individual made off with a large shipment of beer.

Word of mouth circulating between beer distribution companies in the area said it may have impacted Manhattan Beer Distributors in Ridgewood on Metropolitan Avenue and Woodward Avenue; they have not yet returned a request for comment.

Anyone with information regarding the theft can call the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723; all calls are kept confidential.
