Liquor Theft Arrest

Stolen Liquor

A routine traffic stop leads to a "90-proof" find along Interstate 10 in Northwest Florida.

Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock says one of his deputies stopped the truck for not having a tag.

The truck was hauling more than $190,000 worth of stolen liquor from a Publix's Supermarket in Jacksonville.

Agents with the Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco assisted in the investigation.

Sheriff Haddock says the driver was contracted by a Jacksonville man to head to Houston, Texas. But, the driver didn't know the nature of the cargo.

The man who contracted with the driver to haul the stolen liquor, 47-year-old Robert Reese of Scury, Texas was arrested in Jacksonville on several charges.

Publix officials plan to pick-up the stolen liquor today.
