WATCH: Police Offering $10,000 Reward for Stolen Pappy Van Winkle Stash

Remember how authorities were “close” to finding the world’s savviest bourbon thief? There’s now a $10,000 reward for whomever can come up with information about the Pappy Van Winkle heist leading to an arrest and a conviction, so that investigation seems to be going well. Our bet for whodunnit is on those beer-guzzling Norwegian bears.

Some boozy bandit stole 65 cases of 20-year bourbon and 9 cases of 13-year rye from the Kentucky distillery, with an estimated value of $26,000.

Check out the report from The Today Show below to hear everyone on set lose their minds over Natalie Morales saying the words “Pappy Van Winkle” in a Very Serious News Brief. (Willie Geist claims innocence, but he’s as likely a suspect as Anthony Bourdain. They’re probably in on it with the bears. With the power of their lank combined, they could probably take over the world.)
