Stolen booze ring busted

More than $100,000 worth of booze was allegedly stolen from a BC Liquor Distribution Branch warehouse in East Vancouver.

An LDB employee is under police investigation after thefts were first noticed by loss-prevention staff in April.

A police search of a home in Delta last week recovered "boxes and boxes" of liquor, says VPD Const. Jason Doucette.

"I would say over 1,000 bottles in total, and we're estimating it to be well over $100,000 in product," he told CTV.

Two men were taken into custody at the home, and a third LDB employee was later arrested. All three face potential charges of possession of stolen property and theft over $5,000.
