Robber hides in ceiling of Smyrna bar, steals beer

SMYRNA, TN (WSMV) -

A man hid in the ceiling of a Rutherford County bar while it was open and then robbed the business after it closed, said the city's chief of police.

The incident occurred overnight at Pop's Bar And Grill on Front Street.

Chief of Police Kevin Arnold said the robber somehow climbed into the ceiling then robbed the bar of several six packs of beer.  Police did not mention if any money was taken.

To escape the business, the robber then busted out the front door and fled the scene.

No one has been arrested, but Arnold said "We are fairly positive we know who it is."
