A 45-year-old Steuben County man is facing charges after police say he stole beer from a gas station.

State Police say they received a call for a shoplifter at the Fast Trac gas station in Riverside, NY. According to troopers, the clerk reported that a man, later identified as David Eaton of Painted Post, stole an unknown amount of beer.

Troopers tell News10NBC they were able to locate Eaton a short distance from the store, hiding the beer under his shirt.

Eaton was issued an appearance ticket and is due in court later this month.
