77 Year old Charles Vella from Australia claims to have had $4 million dollars worth of cigars stolen from his warehouse.

$4 million dollars in cigars translates into 83,000 sticks of Toscani, Flor De Filipinas and Il Barone cigars.

Mr. Vella provides us with an even more interesting story about the situation: He claims that the theft of the cigars was “organized”.

The warehouse the cigars were stored in had a sophisticated alarm system- bypassed by a ladder. There is no mention of any video recording at the premises.

The final twist of the story is that some of the cigars that were stolen were also “moldy”.
