Bardstown_Principal_Pappy_thiefBourbonblog.com has just been informed that Bardstown Principal Chris Pickett (pictured below in portrait) is being reported as the mysterious “person of interest” in the now famous surveillance video (watch above) from Packages and More Liquor in Elizabethtown, according to his attorney.

This “person of interest” was originally sought by authorities for questioning last week when Sheriff Melton and his team shared the suveillance footage with the public asking for their help in identifying a man who supposedly offered to sell a “large amount” of Pappy 20 to a liquor store. This video was captured only days after $26,000 worth of Pappy was reported stolen from Buffalo Trace Distillery.

Principal Pickett denies the liquor stores report and any involvement in the theft.
