Heist of the Year? Thieves Jacked $1.1 Million Worth of Vodka

By 07.07.13

Shockingly, this outrageous crime took place in the state of Florida. Via Wfla.com:

Thieves with very expensive taste in liquor were caught on camera lifting $1.1 million worth of Spirits of the Tsars Golden Vodka. 

When they left, 752 cases of the pricey vodka were gone. The liquor was valued at $1.1 million, according to the company.

Spirits of the Tsars Golden Vodka President Mark Owens said the crooks “successfully broke a hole right where the vodka is stored and didn't set off any alarms.”

The pricey vodka, made in the Ukraine, comes in a bottle adorned with a 24-carat gold veneer logo and sells for anywhere between $250 and $300 at select liquor stores and $1,200 at nightclubs. Though it was insured, the merchandise is irreplaceable because only a limited quantity is made every year.

Seems like a solid movie premise for the next McLovin. Must've been some afterparty.
