Thieves steal 9,000 bottles of vodka from factory in daring heist in Los Angeles


Earlier this week a group of men broke into a downtown Los Angeles distillery that makes Fog Shots Vodka and made off with 1,800 gallons worth an estimate $280,000.

According to the distillery’s owner, Art Gukaysan, the thieves used a power saw to get in and took almost the entire inventory during the robbery.

A week before the robbery took place, on-site cameras detected someone climbing over the barbed wire across the top of the building and is believed to be involved in the robbery. Police in the area believe that the thieves either stole the alcohol with the intention of shipping it overseas or selling it directly to underage children, as the vodka bottles were labelled and barcoded for sale.
