UPDATE: The Ranger Creek Brewery van was located on Monday morning at an apartment complex near Callaghan and Ingram Road.

The only thing missing was a hand truck and the ignition was busted.


Bandits bypassed the beer to steal a local brewery's van.

While the thieves got away with these wheels, the company fears the suspects are using the van to commit other crimes.

Bandits weren't thirsting for beer but rather for Ranger Creek's only delivery vehicle: A 2001 white Chevy van.

Ranger Creek just got their beer business off the ground 15 months ago. But Monday morning a sobering crime hit them where it hurt.

The company relied solely on the van to deliver its product to San Antonio, Austin and Houston clients.

It's our only van, said Mark McDavid. We are a small business.

McDavid discovered the van missing Monday morning in the 4800 block of Whirlwind Street. He says the car detail business next door was also hit.

He suspects the thieves used his van to pull off that crime, too.

If you see it call police. Ranger Creek is also reaching out through Facebook to get tips.
