    Arrest made in stolen WT barrel case

    According to the Bourbon Review, an arrest has been made in the case of the theft of five barrels from Wild Turkey (which I just now heard of now myself. The suspect's name is Gilbert Thomas Curtsinger and he also faces drug and other charges.

    In an interesting twist, he worked at the loading dock at Buffalo Trace in 2013.

    "They are also pursuing a second suspect."

    Even with two people I think that would be pretty difficult.

    There's actually a JD ad running right now that mentions a full barrel weighs 500+ pounds (I forget the exact number), obviously that goes down over time but that's still a hefty weight (but one that two people probably could pull off).

    Interesting story, but again, I am saddened by the lack of editing and proof reading that goes into journalism these days. Even as a nurse, I am unaware of a controlled substance called "steriords".....

    You're right. I was thinking of girly men such as myself. A guy in that line of work would probably be much stronger than a stay at home dad with an MA in medieval history.

    Rolling barrels from a loading dock into a trailer or truck bed would not be that difficult for one person.

    INDEED! That's why barrels have been a mainstay for storing wet, as well as dry goods for hundreds of years, eh?! Even a newly filled barrel weighing in at nearly 550 pounds is easy to roll around. Just don't roll it over your toes!
