WESTON, Fla., Nov. 7 (UPI) -- A man and woman working in tandem stole a $3,500 commemorative bottle of whiskey from a liquor store in Weston, Fla., police said.

The limited edition Johnnie Walker Blue Label bottle was one of just six bottles distributed in Florida to mark the 200th anniversary of the Scottish whiskey maker, Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion said.

The bottle taken from a display case at Master Wine Liquor had been gone for three days before store employees realized it had been stolen, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Saturday.

Surveillance video from Oct. 30 showed a man putting the rare bottle in his pants and replacing it with a different bottle while a woman distracted store employees, police said.
