Tampa Area Liquor Distributor Robbed Of $1.6 Million In Alcohol
A July heist was made public this week. A liquor distributor with a Tampa Bay area warehouse was robbed of what can only be described as an amazing amount of cases of liquor.
CNN reported that an alcohol distributor’s warehouse near Tampa was robbed. This wasn’t just any robbery. The warehouse is one operated by Republic National Distributing Company. Brands such as Jameson, Malibu and Jose Cuervo are among the products carried by Republic National Distributing Company.
The warehouse, located in Gibsonton, Florida, had its video recorders removed by the suspects. Those suspects loaded tractor trailer trucks with 4,277 cases of liquor.
What can be described as a big theft might be an understatement. Reports are that the theft happened back on Saturday, July 8, 2023. The activity happened in the early-morning hours, between 4:10 and 9:45 a.m.
Investigators are looking for information that may be on an iPhone. Though the security system at the warehouse was disabled, there was video evidence from a nearby convenience store. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office was able to identify trucks used in the heist.
Because the investigation is ongoing, Republic National Distributing Company officials were unable to go on record with CNN.
