A weekend party at a Lawrence apartment likely didn’t go exactly as planned after a beer keg was stolen.

A 24-year-old Kansas University student reported to Lawrence police Saturday night that someone had stolen the full keg he had placed outside, said Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman.

It happened between 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at an apartment in the 4300 block of West 24th Place near Clinton Parkway and Inverness Drive.

Sarna said the man had put the keg outside the apartment to help it cool before a party. He went outside later and discovered the keg was gone.

According to the police report, the keg was valued at $175.

I can't believe they even bothered to put this online. So what, a keg got stolen. Kid learned a lesson and won't put beer outside again.

It's really mean for all you people to sit or stand and make fun of someone just because he thought he could trust his neighbors not to steal his private property. What has happened to this town? It used to be the kind of place where everyone just let people's stuff alone and you could leave your car unlocked and your door open on the back porch. Not anymore. I can't even walk outside or down to the store without being afraid of who knows what. Even the west side is becoming frightening. We really need more police patrolling around town on foot like back in the old days.

Hahahahaha. They deserve it. It was only going to be a source of underage drinking anyway.
