A group of malefactors stole a batch of elite Ukrainian vodka "Spirit of the Tsars Golden Vodka" from a warehouse in Miami worth $1.1 million. In total, about 4,500 bottles of vodka have been stolen.
The perpetrators had planned their actions in advance. They made a hole in the wall of the warehouse in the place where boxes with the "Spirit of the Tsars" were stored. The thieves took nothing but alcohol, although there was expensive property, art and even cars stored at the warehouse.
Within a few hours, the intruders stole 752 boxes of premium alcohol and took their trophy away on a truck, a minibus and a Mercedes-Benz vehicle.
According to President of Spirit of the Tsars, Mark Owens, the retail price of a bottle starts from $249. In clubs, a 0.5 liter bottle of "Spirit of the Tsars" costs $1,200.
