    A driver apparently desperate for a cold one is wanted by police after surveillance video showed him crashing a Ford SUV into a Delaware County store and stealing two beers. 

    The driver slammed the vehicle into a beer distributor on the 100 block of South Newtown Street Road in Newtown Square Wednesday shortly after 4 a.m. He then pushed his way through the wreckage and snagged two cans of Bud Ice before fleeing the scene.

    While the two cans of stolen beer were only worth a few dollars, the damage caused by the crash was around $15,000, according to the store owner. The owner also said however it would be covered by insurance.

    "He's dangerous anyway you look at it," Mike Huhn, a customer at the store, told NBC10. "If he's willing to do something like that to back up into a store and rob it, well what's next? Running somebody over to get away from it? Running a policeman over? God only knows."
