Police are investigating a tequila heist which occurred at the Total Wine superstore at Lady Lake Commons.
The theft took place shortly after 2 p.m. Oct. 4 when an individual entered the store and took boxes of Patron Anejo and Patron Silver, according to an incident report from the Lady Lake Police Department. The boxes of high-end Mexican tequila had a combined value of $787.
