Over 15k whiskey bottles stolen
DUBLIN — Police in Ireland are hunting a criminal gang that escaped with more than 15 000 bottles of whiskey and gin in an audacious daylight heist.
Armed with iron bars, the gang loaded the alcohol into two 12 metre trucks after tying up the employees at a warehouse on the outskirts of Dublin, police said on Monday.
A total of 15 480 bottles of Jameson Whiskey were taken in the raid on the afternoon of 14 November.
An unknown number of six-bottle cases of Bombay Sapphire gin and six-bottle cases of Jack Daniel’s whiskey were also stolen.
Police believe the alcohol will be offered for sale on the black market in the run up to Christmas. — AFP
