Is there a way for a reward to be insulting?? Because this comes close!
So some crafty drunkards (we assume!) pulled off a alcohol huge heist and have gotten away with it — they stole $1.1 million worth of vodka!
As it turns out, that's EXACTLY the amount of vodka that a company would like to have back (especially an expensive brand), so there is now a reward being offered for information about the theft! Wanna guess how much? Like a cool $30k, right? We mean, it's $1.1 MILLION worth!
Authorities are only offering $5,000 which hardly seems worth the effort, especially if you're in it for the cash and not the sense of moral duty! LOLz!
This specific type of vodka has a 24-carat gold logo, and sells for anywhere from $250 to $300 in liquor stores, and can cost as much as $1,200 in the right nightclub! The Miami Dade Police Department report on the heist took place from 11:05 p.m. to 11:47 p.m. on June 22 — George Clooney and Matt Damon have not returned our calls. Ha!
Video shows masked thieves arrive at a Miami warehouse in a Mercedes Benz and a small fleet of cars, vans and a truck! They then proceeded to steal the shizz out of 752 cases of Spirit of the Tsars Golden Vodka. Here's what the President of the company had to say:
“The way this transpired, it was clearly a professional job. There was a buyer that sent them to get that product, and then they delivered the product, got the money and that was the end of it.”
You seem to know a lot about it, Mr. Owens! Maybe it was YOUR PLAN ALL ALONG! Ha!
The reason it's so expensive is that they only produce a limited amount during the year, and people are suckers and will buy anything. They lost an amount that was about 20% of their year's stock!
That's cray! Though, shouldn't that make the remaining stock worth more??
We'd like to try this vodka! We bet it tastes like vodka!
