GOLF club bosses believe booze thieves stole to order.
A gang broke into a beer cage outside Crow Nest Park Golf Club, on Coach Road in Hove Edge, in the early hours of Thursday.
They took 14 kegs of alcohol including Carling lager and Magners cider, worth about £1,200, in several trips between 12.40am and 1.30am.
But they ignored four other kegs of alcohol that would need to be hand-pulled.
Club manager Les Holmes said: “They obviously knew what they were after. We believe it has been done to order.”
Four of the five thieves wore hooded tops and are thought to have been in their late teens. A fifth man was white and thought to be in his 20s.
One wore Adidas tracksuit bottoms. Another had distinctive black and white shoes.
They were caught on CCTV making off in a silver car, thought to be a Vauxhall Zafira, and a light coloured sports car.
The kegs are identifiable by stickers on the top, with the delivery date of October 20.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers are appealing in particular to any public houses which may have been offered the beer for sale.”
Witnesses or anyone with information should call Pc Diane Weldon on 0845 6060606.
