THIS MAY JUST BE the stupidest theft in history.  Someone stole a diamond-encrusted bottle of Russo-Baltique vodka, worth an estimated $1.3 million, drank the vodka and dumped the bottle.  But it was the bottle that held the value, not the vodka.  The bottle was stolen in early January from a bar in Copenhagen where it was on loan from a Russian businessman as part of a display of 12OO different vodkas.  The bottle contains three kilograms of gold and the same quantity of silver and is adorned with a circular patch of leather from a 1912 Monte Carlo rally car.  Its cap is shaped like a Russian imperial eagle and is encrusted with diamonds.  The bottle, made by the Dartz Factory in Latvia, is thought to have garnered interest after its appearance in the Netflix series House of Cards.  Its was found a few days after being stolen at a construction site.  Although it is theorized that the thief was unaware of the bottle’s value there is also a possibility that s/he realized exactly how valuable it was and that it was a foolish move to have stolen it in the first place given its heritage and that the owner was likely highly displeased.
