According to Ohio.com, 70 cases of beer was stolen over the weekend from Tim Owens’ Travelers Tavern, the Akron, Ohio bar and restaurant co-owned by former JUDAS PRIEST and ICED EARTH singer Tim “Ripper” Owens. The estimated $1,500 of brew was taken from an outdoor walk-in cooler, which was protected with heavy-duty locks. The thief or thieves apparently cut through the door with what were apparently a crowbar and a hammer and made off with beer.
“It’s a really sad thing that someone had to do this,” said Owens. “Any time you get ahead in a business and someone does this, it’s hard.“
