Robber hid in liquor cooler

CHEYENNE -- A transient man is accused of hiding out in the cooler of a Cheyenne liquor store so he could drink for free after hours. Police say surveillance camera footage shows 27-year-old Sean A. Moore entering the cooler at DT's Liquor Mart at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. The store closed a half-hour later and soon afterward he was shown leaving the cooler and walking throughout the store. Police found him -- in jail. A few hours after leaving the cooler, he was arrested for making harassing calls to 911 dispatchers.

Hiker identified
