Curtsinger pleads guilty of stealing whisky
Back in August 2015 Gilbert "Toby"'Curtsinger was mentioned and now today Toby pleaded guilty to seven counts in Franklin Circuit Court on Wednesday. Those charges range from theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property to possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police say Curtsinger was the ringleader in a Pappy Van Winkle bourbon heist that garnered international coverage. Buffalo Trace Distillery reported someone stole multiple cases of its rare 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle. Wild Turkey Distillery also reported cases of missing whisky.
The thefts, valuing in the tens of thousands of dollars, took place over a couple of months and both distilleries believed the heist was an inside job.
