The tale of a thief with taste

 

Nobody likes at an alcohol thief but sadly, here at The Steeple Times have to write about a fair few of them. Most recently, we wrote of the case of Romain Brunot, a man so partial to Krug and Belvedere that he helped himself to some £75,000 worth of the stuff. Brunot got a short jail sentence but today we feature a man exposed by Conrad Black’s National Post for stealing a $26,000 bottle of whisky.

Those who rob stores either blend or blaze in. You have your gun wielding sort and you have your undercover pickpocket. In Toronto, though, the man so keen on a 50 year old Glenfiddich single malt was dressed, rather appropriately, in Burberry.

 

Said individual paid for a bottle of wine and left. Later, the store’s management realised that they were missing a bottle from a locked cabinet and on checking their cameras they discovered the culprit. Rather gallantly, a spokesperson commented:

 

“Wherever that bottle ends up, I just hope it ends up getting opened and enjoyed by someone”.
