70,000 Beer Cans Found in Ogden Townhouse — All Coors Light
He couldn’t even open the front door. It was blocked from inside.
Ryan Froerer, Century 21: “He poked his head in, the smell was so awful he couldn’t go in. “
Inside, he took just a few snapshots to document the scene. Beer cans by the tens of thousands. Mountains of cans burying the furniture. The water and heat were shut off, apparently on purpose by the tenant, who evidently drank Coors Light beer exclusively for the eight years he lived there.
To all outward appearances, the person who lived in the townhouse was the perfect tenant. He always paid on time and he never complained. He kept a low profile in the neighborhood.
Kirk Martin, Letter Carrier: : “Yeah I never delivered any mail there at all. I thought the apartment was vacant.”
The cans were recycled for 800 dollars, an estimated 70,000 cans: 24 beers a day for 8 years.
The man who lived there seems to be back on his feet. We spoke to him today and he says he’s completely stopped drinking. He was welcomed back to his old job a few months ago, and his co-workers speak highly of him.
