Lincoln Police released surveillance images of the "Beer Box Bandit". They're hoping someone might recognize the robber, despite the fact he has a beer box on his head.

Police say the bandit struck at about 4:40 a.m. Monday. The man robbed a Kwik Shop at 4400 Cornhusker Highway while wearing a Bud Light beer box on his head.

The man had wrapped a green rag around one of his hands, suggesting that he was armed, but the man never showed a weapon.

Police say as the man fled the Lincoln convenience store, he dropped the beer box disguise.

The bandit left the store with nine packs of cigarettes.

Lincoln Police spokeswoman Katie Flood said technicians will be checking the empty Bud Light 12-pack box for fingerprints.

Police say the suspect is described as a black male about 5'6" with a thin build. He was reportedly wearing a black shirt, black jeans, white tennis shoes, and a beer box on his head.
