Some thieves in Knoxville may have been disappointed after they looked inside a stolen beer van.
According to Knoxville Police, someone stole a 2008 Chevy van belonging to Cherokee Distributing around 7:30 Friday morning. The white van, with a Miller beer sign on the side, was parked behind the Food City on Broadway. The driver told investigators he'd left the keys in the ignition.
Despite the logos, Knoxville Police say the van contained several coolers and a grill, but no beer.
