Man dressed like a cowboy destroys $1 million worth of wine

WOODINVILLE, WA – A rogue figure, reminiscent of a wild west cowboy, has successfully evaded the Washington state sheriff’s office after causing significant damage at a local winery. The perpetrator, responsible for the destruction of $1 million worth of wine, left behind only a sea of spilled alcohol and a shadowy figure captured on security footage.

Upon returning to their wine-soaked warehouse after the Thanksgiving break, Sparkman Cellars employees were met with the pungent smell of ruined wine, as reported by the King County Sheriff’s Office.

The security footage from the evening of November 22nd provided a glimpse into the events that transpired after the employees had secured the facility for the night.

The unidentified intruder, dressed in a cowboy hat and poncho, breached the facility using a keypad code at the staff-only entrance. The surveillance cameras captured the mysterious trespasser as he entered the barrel room and emptied two tanks, each containing 2,500 gallons of white wine.

After watching the wine flow freely for a few minutes, the suspect made his exit, disappearing into the nearby woods, shielded by a dark umbrella. It remains a mystery if he indulged in a glass of the spilled wine to celebrate his destructive act.

Fox 13’s conversation with the owners revealed that the loss equates to 25,000 bottles of wine, amounting to $1 million before factoring in the clean-up costs.

The winery had just finished the barreling process following a fruitful harvest season, as per King 5 News. The employees are now working tirelessly to find solutions and meet their order commitments.

The King County Sheriff’s Office, who were unavailable for comment at the time of reporting, has yet to identify a suspect. The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with useful information is urged to reach out to the detectives.
