It was a case of ‘We’re only here for the beer’ when thirsty thieves targeted a Meath pub yesterday.

CCTV footage from the Garden Bar area of the Kilberry Pub & Kitchen, between Navan and Nobber shows a van pull up at 11.12 am before a masked and gloved robber jumps out and snaffles seven kegs with a combined value of €1500.

As his accomplice remains behind the wheel the tricky thief takes the kegs into the van one at a time loading a magnificent 7 Up inside a minute before he jumps back in and the driver reverses away,

In a post on Facebook accompanying the clip, the owners said, The van was seen in the area over the last few days. If you have CCTV we would appreciate any information***

Have you seen this van in the area today (Wednesday 2nd) between 11 am and 11.15 am?

They helped themselves to 7 of our kegs. If you have seen this van please call 0861059999 or Navan Gardai!’
