Kegs for Cash

Tampa Bay's 10 News-Man charged with stealing empty beer kegs
Tampa, Florida - A self-employed construction worker with a thirst for recycling was arrested this week.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says he's charged with helping himself to empty beer kegs from bars and restaurants and selling them for scrap stainless steel.

About a dozen empty kegs were found in the truck of the suspect, Eddie Nelson Perez, 40, of Tampa, when deputies put him under arrest Thursday morning.

They say more than 100 empty kegs have been stolen in the past two months.

Each had an estimated value of $40.

Now that is a novel approach to recycling. Happened in Florida of course. Why, oh why, does this kind of shit always happen in Florida?
