The man was caught at the Al Batha border crossing in Saudi Arabia. What makes the situation amusing, but certainly not for the smuggler, is the fact that the cans of beers were disguised as Pepsi cans.
"A truck carrying what first seemed to be normal cans of the soft drink Pepsi was stopped and after the standard process of searching the products, it became clear the alcoholic beer was covered with Pepsi stickers," border General Manager Abdulrahman al-Mahna said, according to al-Arabiya News.

It remains to be seen what punishment the driver of the truck will face, as often the degree of punishment depends on who commits the offense. The man might be lucky and get away with the smuggling attempt if the beer was intended for one of the rowdy Saudi princes. If not though, well the best of luck to the smuggler, as alcohol is illegal in Saudi Arabia.
Nevertheless, it certainly looks like despite being criminalized in Saudi Arabia, beer is in high demand in the Wahhabi kingdom. With the beer now having been confiscated, someone's bound to get real thirsty, real soon.
