— A 42-year-old Knightdale man has been charged with a felony after repeatedly stealing beer from Walmart and a gas station in Zebulon, authorities said.

Chicago Brian Smith, of 1128 Massey Farm Road, is charged with habitual larceny.

Zebulon police say he stole a total of 28 cases of Budweiser and Bud Light between Oct. 8 and Nov. 2. Three of the incidents occurred at Walmart on East Gannon Avenue in Zebulon, and the fourth happened at a Sheetz gas station in Zebulon.

Smith was previously convicted of misdemeanor larceny in August 2015 and July 2015. He was being held in the Wake County jail Wednesday under a $50,000 bond.

    Comes out to a little more that a case a day. He's likely got it bad ... this sounds like maintenance drinking.
    He's drying out now. Hope he gets some help.

    "Zebulon police say he stole a total of 28 cases of Budweiser and Bud Light..."

    If I was going to risk going to prison for a few cases of beer, I would at least grab the good stuff!
