Police are investigating a break-in involving the theft of several bottles of high-end wine worth thousands of dollars.
Details on this heist are still sketchy, but police said the theft occurred sometime overnight Tuesday when a person broke into an industrial building in San Francisco's Bayview District that happened to house Fine Wines International.
The suspect stole 80 bottles of wine, which is just under seven cases, and the total value of those bottles is more than $100,000.
The renowned Fine Wines International has been based on Palou Avenue for more than 30 years as a purveyor of high-end wines.
There are less pricey bottles on the company website, but there are also wines that cost $20,000 a per case and there is even one that runs $37,000 per case.
San Francisco police are trying to figure out if this was an opportunistic crime or something else.
"When someone breaks into a place, they never know what they're going to get," said San Francisco police spokesman Albie Esparza. "The police department always looks into is whether or not the place was cased, or this was a random act."
Police want to hear from anyone who may have seen something at the building Tuesday night.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
