A gun-wielding bandit robbed a Boerum Hill beer distributor but neglected to steal any of the booze.

The armed robber walked into the beer warehouse on Baltic Street near Bond Street on Aug. 10 at 6:30 pm. After forcing two employees into an office at gunpoint, he stole their wallets and belongings, police said.

The assailant fled without stealing any of the valuable and thirst-quenching beer kegs that line the warehouse. Police are still searching for the gunman.


A perp in need of pep walked into a gas station convenience store on Hamilton Avenue near Mill Street on Aug. 12 and stole $50 worth of energy drinks, police said.

Police say the case is open as an unattended can of Red Bull.
