Sheriff's office following lead in bourbon heist

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Franklin County sheriff's office has a new lead in the disappearance of about 65 cases of one of Kentucky's rarest and most sought-after bourbons.

Sheriff Pat Melton's office on Wednesday released surveillance video that was taken several counties away at a liquor store in Hardin County on Oct. 20. Melton told The State Journal in Frankfort
(http://bit.ly/1ahObKW ) that a man offered to sell the store a "large quantity" of Pappy Van Winkle bourbon.

Buffalo Trace Distillery reported about $25,350 worth of the 20-year-old limited stock and about $675 in nine cases of 13-year-old Van Winkle Family Reserve rye missing.

The sheriff's office is calling a man in the video a person of interest in the case, and the investigation is now focused on Hardin and Nelson counties.
