(Classic Rock) Thieves stole $1500 worth of beer from a bar owned by former Judas Priest singer Tim 'Ripper' Owens. Tim Owens' Traveler's Tavern in Akron, Ohio, was broken into at the weekend, with 70 cases of beer taken from a walk-in cooler.

Owens - who fronted Priest between 1996 and 2003 - tells the Akron Beacon Journal: "It's a really sad thing that someone had to do this. Any time you get ahead in a business and someone does this, it's hard."

The bar, which also doubles as a gig venue, was set to host a wake on Saturday, so there was more stock than usual in the cooler. Owens adds: "I don't think it had anything to do with the event. I think it was probably an old employee or a regular who knew the cooler was back there and happened to steal that night." Read more here.
