Authorities in Montreal have been baffled by a recent heist at a Seagram spirits
warehouse, where over C$1.4m ($933,333) worth of alcohol was stolen.

The thieves loaded five tractor-trailers full of spirits and drove four of them
away. The remaining trailer was left at the warehouse, in the west of the city,
reported the Montreal Gazette.

Local police believe four or five men carried out the audacious robbery late
in the evening.

One of the bandits was armed and threatened a 24-year-old security guard on
duty that night. The guard was tied up and taken to a back storage room in the
warehouse. Police estimate the thieves were on the scene for roughly three-and-a-half-hours.
