MEDLEY, Fla., Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said thieves made off with about $500,000 worth of Red Bull energy drinks being stored at a warehouse.

The Medley Police Department said workers at OHL Inc. last saw the nearly 100 pallets of energy drinks in the evening Nov. 9 and the beverages were missing when they arrived the evening of Nov. 11 and discovered the doors were unlocked, the Miami Herald reported Tuesday.

Detective Lourdes Muniz said the thieves are believed to have had inside knowledge of the warehouse as they apparently had a key to get in and knew how to disconnect the alarm system.

Muniz said there were no security cameras in use during the time of the burglary.
