Sheriff: $26,000 In Bourbon Stolen

Franklin County’s sheriff says someone stole 195 bottles of bourbon — worth $26,000 — from the Buffalo Trace Distillery.

Sheriff Pat Melton says it happened over the last couple of months. He says it was a rare blend of 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle, which retail for about $130 per bottle. Melton says someone took 65 cases of them over a two-month period.

The sheriff says he thinks it’s an inside job. No one has been arrested.
