EASTPOINTE, Mich. – Police in suburban Detroit are looking for a 6-foot-tall glass of Guinness. Don’t worry, it’s work-related.

A green, pint-glass-shaped Guinness costume has been reported stolen from an Eastpointe resident’s garage. It’s valued at $3,000 and had been flown to Michigan from Ireland to be used as advertising. Eastpointe Police Lt. Leo Borowsky says it is believed to be one of only two such costumes in the U.S.

Authorities say a Detroit beer distribution company loaned out the costume for Halloween. The owner of the home where the costume had been stored found out it had been stolen after the company asked for it back.

Borowsky says to be on the lookout. There’s no better time to dress up as a green pint of Guinness than on St. Patrick’s Day.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
