Florida officials are looking for thieves who stole $100,000 of tequila packaged in bottles shaped like Tommy guns, WFTV.com reports.
The liquor was stolen along with a tractor trailer on Dec. 3 from the Trucker's Paradise truck stop in Orange County, Fla., the station said.
The theives took the white 1997 Freightliner with Texas plates after driver Orlando Cerra parked the vehicle and its cargo at the stop. The tequila was on its way to south Florida from Chicago.
"I had no idea this kind of crime was alive and well today," Gina Zera, a spokeswoman for Tommy Guns Tequila Co., told the station.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
