At 11 p.m. on Monday, June 8, a 2001 Haulmark storage trailer belonging to Costa Mesa-based booze heaven Hi-Time Wine Cellars was stolen from their parking lot. The exact details are still being investigated by the Costa Mesa Police Department, but the company's beer buyer, Matt Link, noticed the trailer was missing on Tuesday morning.
The only leads Hi-Time has are that there was a silver, mid-size extended cab truck and a red mini-van present around the same time the trailer went missing. Tobin Sharp, creative director at Hi-Time Wine Cellar, says that the team suspects someone hooked up the trailer (which might have had flat tires) to their vehicle and drove off. The trailer contained empty beer kegs, according to Sharp.
