Atlanta police are searching for a suspect after a truck full of Jack Daniels turned up stolen.

One employee at the yard told police he "checked the trailer out of the yard" without asking the driver for his personal information. He said the man didn't seem suspicious.

Surveillance camera footage showed a white Chevrolet Tahoe parked across from the trailer yard before a white van pulled into the lot moments later. After the truck left, the van followed.
