Hillsborough County deputies recovered over half a million dollars of stolen tequila on Sunday night

Vidal Estrada, Lemuel Escobar, Humberto Ramirez and Alberto Obaya were arrested at the scene and charged with grand theft and with resisting officers without violence.

Sheriff's deputies in Florida recovered a half-million dollar truckload of stolen tequila early on New Year's Eve.

Deputies say that around 11 p.m. Sunday, a truck driver hauling the load of tequila stopped for dinner at a Tampa Truck stop on U.S. 301. The trucker noticed his trailer was no longer attached to his rig and phoned the sheriff's office.

Around 12:30 a.m., deputies located the semi-trailer near the intersection of Ike Smith Road and McIntosh Road in the Thonotosassa area of Hillsborough County.

3 in the 2019 NFL Draft
When records are tied, the team with the weaker strength of schedule is awarded the higher pick. Two years ago, the Niners finished with the No. 2 overall pick entering the 2017 NFL Draft .

Four men in Florida were arrested Monday for allegedly stealing more than $500,000 worth of tequila.

Obaya was hit with an additional charge of possession of a controlled substance. As they watched, they saw four men carrying cases of Patron tequila from the trailer to a box truck parked right behind it.

Before the deputies moved in on the thieves, the group of men transferred more than 20 cases from the fully loaded trailer, cops said. The fourth fled, but was arrested a short time later.

The 966 cases of tequila in the trailer were worth $507,105, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office reported according to NBC.
