T

wo Hiram Walker employees hatched a plan to steal some whiskey from the distillery for their own, private stash.

One of the employees bought some plastic jugs and smuggled them into the far reaches of the Windsor, Ont. warehouse, where barrels of 25-year-old whiskey were stored. The conspirators had siphoned the equivalent of 38 bottles of retail product when their supervisor discovered them.
