A crate of beer proved too tempting for a thirsty thief.

Two people were walking north along Great King St at 7pm on Saturday, when a man approached them and stole their crate of DB Export beer, Acting Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond said.

The 21-year-old man was later located and arrested for theft.
