Police in Denver have arrested a man on suspicion of theft. He is accused of stealing expensive wines from several area liquor stores and then selling them on an Internet auction site. According to an article in The Colorado Springs Gazette, an undercover operation by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department led to the recovery of 85 bottles of wine from the man’s home. One of the wine bottles had a reported value of $3,000. Police have not yet released the name of the suspect.
