FORT MYERS, Fla. Authorities say a semitrailer carrying nearly 2,000 cases of wine was reported stolen from a truck stop in Fort Myers.

The driver, Luis Ramirez, told deputies Monday that he was inside the truck stop from around 2 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. When he went back outside, his blue Kenworth truck containing more than $100,000 worth of wine was gone.

Ramirez told authorities the truck wasn't locked because the locks weren't working, and the vehicle was not equipped with a security system.
