Teen accused of stealing beer from Walmart

CLARENCE, N.Y. (WIVB) – Troopers charged a 17-year-old man with stealing beer from Walmart on Transit Road in Clarence last Friday.

State Police were called to the store around 10 p.m. after a loss prevention officer reported seeing the teen stuffing beer cans into his backpack. Troopers found the vehicle the teen rode away in as it was pulling into a driveway in Clarence.

The driver told officers he was unaware of any theft, but troopers say the passenger had a backpack with the beer inside.

He is charged with petit larceny and possession of alcohol under age 21. Due to his age, we are not releasing his name.

The teen is due back in court at a later date.
