$700,000 worth of booze stolen in Sydney

Champagne, vodka, scotch, rum, wine and pre-mixers was among $700,000 worth of alcohol stolen from a Sydney distribution centre over six months last year.

Detectives investigating the theft are appealing for public help to find the thieves.

They say large volumes of alcohol were stolen from the product distribution centre in Eastern Creek, in Sydney's west.

"Detectives believe the thefts were carried out on 13 separate dates between July and December, with the thieves transporting the stolen liquor from the distribution centre in a large truck," police said in a statement.

Police from the State Crime Command's Property Crime Squad have formed Strike Force Glenlee to investigate the thefts, targeting businesses that may have received the stolen liquor.

Investigators believe the stolen alcohol may have been transported to businesses around the Lurnea area.
