A man has gone to a lot of trouble to get his hands on a couple of bottles of soft drink at Pokolbin this morning.
Cessnock Police responded to an intruder alarm at Hunter Valley Gardens on Broke Road just after 4 o'clock, where they intercepted a car leaving the area.
They arrested a 34-year-old man - he's accused of breaking into a cafe at the Gardens and stealing two bottles of Coke.
Police say the man is known to them - it's likely he'll be refused bail to face court later this morning charged with break, enter and steal.
