BENICIA — A semi-trailer with more than 1,000 cases of wine was reported stolen Monday morning just hours after a tractor truck it possibly was attached to was reported missing about two miles away, police said.

The trailer with an estimated $50,000 shipment of various wines was reported stolen at 9:15 a.m. Monday from a trucking company at 6800 Goodyear Road, Sgt. Mark Alkire said.

Earlier Monday, police received a report of a stolen tractor truck in the 300 block of Industrial Way, Alkire added.

"Our guess is someone stole the truck and then stole the trailer," Alkire said. "We are looking into the possibility of a connection."

Anyone with information about the missing truck or the trailer may call Benicia Detective Kenny Hart at 707-746-4252.
