Police on hunt for men who stole £60k worth of vodka

Police are searching for two men who stole around £60,000 worth of vodka from a warehouse in Glasgow this month.

The thieves made off with around 140 cases of premium vodka from John G Russell warehouse on Deanside Road in Hillington.

Police believe two men broke into the warehouse in the early hours of Sunday 18 November, making their getaway in a silver-coloured car that was parked nearby.

The men took cases of Diageo-owned Ciroc vodka, a five-times distilled grape-based vodka produced in France. The original expression retails for around £25-£30 per 70cl bottle, but flavoured variants, limited-edition expressions and large format bottles can go for far more.

Detective Constable Craig Conway, of the Police Scotland Community Investigation Unit, said: “Our enquiries have revealed that two men are responsible for the housebreaking and theft of vodka and that they made off in a silver coloured vehicle that was parked nearby.

“I would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the men acting suspiciously in the area or carrying the cases of vodka into the car.

“I’d also like to hear from anyone who has been offered cut price Ciroc Vodka in the last week. The bottles are a very distinctive electric blue colour with a silver top”.

“Anyone with information should contact police at the Community Investigation Unit at Helen Street Police Station via telephone number 101 quoting incident number 1439”.

Alternatively, witnesses can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
