Phoenix Police Looking for Beer-Thirsty Car Thief
The man in the photo to the right is not Frank Castle in town to commit some vigilante killings, he's just an alleged car thief in a Punisher t-shirt stealing beer from a gas station.
Phoenix police are looking for a man who was caught on camera jacking two 30-packs of Bud Light from a Circle K store near West Union Hills Drive and North 35th Avenue in Phoenix around 5 p.m. on January 17.
The man then got into a white Ford Escape SUV, which police later determined to be stolen.
He was last seen driving the SUV east on Union Hills Drive, police say.

The vehicle was found days after he sauntered out of the store with the beer, but police are still searching for the man.
The suspect is described as being white, about 5-foot-7, 170 pounds, and with tattoos on both arms.
During the beer run, he was wearing the Punisher t-shirt, which is brown with a skull on the front, brown pants, and a dark baseball cap.
Police ask anyone with information to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO for Spanish.
