AMERICAN CANYON -- Following the loss of about 350 cases of wine at a local warehouse, Napa Sheriff detectives Tuesday arrested a warehouse employee at his Vacaville apartment, authorities said.

The theft was discovered about 11:40 a.m. Friday when American Canyon police responded to a report of theft at a wine storage facility in the 600 block of Hanna Drive in the industrial area.

The warehouse reported that about 350 cases of wine, worth more than $400,000, was missing and had been, possibly, stolen, according to a Napa Sheriff s press release.

Officers found no signs of forced entry. That, combined with the large volume of wine missing, led law enforcement to suspect an employee might be responsible for the missing wine.
