A 79-year-old man is a suspect in the theft in Phoenix of more than 700 cases of wine reportedly worth more than $250,000. The state Department of Liquor Licenses and Control says the suspect owns the building housing the Hungarian Wholesale Liquor Store, where the thefts occurred. A 57-year-old man also has been arrested in the investigation.
