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
