Pappy Heist

"We're just trying to bring Pappy home," Sheriff Pat Melton said as he unveiled a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the folks responsible for stealing about $26,000 of Pappy Van Winkle's bourbon and rye whiskey. Detectives continue to gather leads and have been monitoring Craigslist, eBay and bourbon blogs in hopes of tracking down the pilfered spirits, the sheriff said, adding that bourbon fans want to know who took part of the limited Pappy Van Winkle stock because "that's less that they have an opportunity to get."
