He's giving new meaning to the term 'beer run,' and police are looking for him

Authorities in Fort Worth are searching for a man described as a serial "beer run" suspect who rammed a female gas station employee while carrying cases of beer to make one of his escapes.

The Fort Worth Police Department reported that since Jan. 11, the suspect has targeted the same gas station at 4600 Southwest Loop 820 three times.

Detectives working the case said the man stole beer from the business on Jan. 11, 18 and 26. The suspect is described as a white male in his early- to mid-30s, between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-7 with an average build.

Detectives said In the Jan. 18 incident, a female store employee recognized the suspect’s vehicle from the Jan. 11 incident and stood in front of the entrance to the business. The suspect, carrying cases of beer, pushed past her, knocking her into the door and leaving her with minor injuries, according to detectives.

Detectives said that in each incident, the suspect will grab several cases of beer, run out of the main doors and flee as a passenger in a vehicle parked outside. The vehicle appears to be an early 2000s model, black four-door Honda Accord with a low profile spoiler.
