Beer Can Thief Gets Prison Time

Posted by wlpo on February 5, 2010

45 year old Joseph Kelly of Ottawa was sentenced to eight years Thursday after pleading guilty to burglary charges.

He admitted breaking into a rented storage shed in Peru back in 2008 and stealing around 1,000 collectable beer cans from Mike Cusick.  Cusick later noticed some of his cans for sale on EBay.  Police were able to recover nearly the entire collection.

Kelly was already in the Livingston County Jail on an unrelated burglary charge.
