March 30 (UPI) -- Police in Michigan are trying to identify a man suspected of stealing a 12-foot-tall inflatable beer bottle worth more than $2,000.

Kalamazoo Public Safety released a photo of a man police said was caught on surveillance cameras taking the giant inflatable bottle of Oberon beer from its spot near the Radisson Hotel in the city's downtown about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The inflatable advertisement stands over 12 feet tall and is valued at more than $2,000, police said.

"The suspect may have been in the company of another subject at the time of the theft," police said.

The theft came a little more than a day after Oberon Day, an unofficial local holiday that marks the annual tapping of Bell's Brewery's popular summer beer.
