Thieves steal 9,000 bottles of vodka from distillery

Police are searching for thieves who swiped more than 1,800 (6,800 liters) gallons of vodka from a Los Angeles distillery.

Investigators say the suspects sawed through dead bolts to get inside a storage room at the Fog Shots distillery on Washington.

This incident happened on Sunday, but three weeks ago, there was some other suspicious activity, and authorities believe the two incidents may be connected. Nothing was stolen in the earlier incident, but almost 9,000 bottles of vodka was stolen in the latest one.

Company representative Art Gukasayan says the thieves made away with about 90% of the company’s holiday inventory and that the take was worth about $278,000.
