LONDON (AP) -- Scotland Yard is searching for 1 million pounds
($1.6 million) worth of vintage wine stolen from an east London
warehouse.

Police say thieves disabled alarms and security cameras before breaking into the warehouse on Sunday and using a forklift to load
up about 400 cases of the precious cargo.

Some of the stolen wine belonged to private investors, one of whom has offered a 5,000 pound reward for the return of the stolen stock.

The Metropolitan Police appealed to the public for information, saying the stolen wine is rare and valuable and could be sold to private collectors or auction houses.

Six men were seen with what police said they believe are the three getaway vehicles. Police said two men have been arrested in connection with the burglary.

    Well if it's so rare and valuable they can offer up more than 5000 pounds for it.They are greedy with their money. If I stole it and was going to go down for it, I'd drink some of it.In fact I'd take some and take a bath in it.Just wallow around in some filthy rich wine.
