Trial delayed for suspects in bourbon theft ring

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The trial for six people charged in a massive Kentucky bourbon theft ring has been delayed.

The suspects are accused of stealing 17 wooden barrels of bourbon, 20 cases of Pappy Van Winkle and one stainless steel barrel of Eagle Rare over a 7-year span. 

Ten people were indicted as part of the theft ring, but four people have pleaded guilty to reduced charges and have agreed to testify.

The trial for the remaining six suspects was originally scheduled to begin today, but is now delayed until some time next year.
