5/12/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dan released a statement to TMZ -- claiming, he is both "distressed and elated" after hearing that several hundred thousand dollars worth of his vodka was hijacked within the last few days.

The statement continues, "My partners and I are sorry to lose this much vodka to theft and do not condone criminal activity in any fashion, but we are happy that some consumers will be afforded the opportunity of tasting it at significantly lower than retail price."

Dan adds, "CHV can be purchased legally at bars, restaurants, and retail stores throughout North America." Fun fact -- the vodka recently won a Double gold Award at the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits Competition ... unanimously beating out 200 other brands.

As for police involvement -- Dan's rep tells us, both the LAPD and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms are currently investigating the vodka-napping.

That vodka is not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. A 1.75L bottle will sell for $85 and that is on sale. The vodka is supposedly filtered thru crushed diamonds. So basically Dan Akroyd may have lost $1785000. Chump change for the Blues Brother.

Hoopee    

Someone stole 21,000 bottles of Vodka in Los Angeles? Seems the most likely place to begin the search is at Chelsea Handler's house. Unnamed sources say, "Chelsea ran out of Belvedere and the stores were closed, but Chelsea is used to drinking from brainless skulls anyway." .. #50cent

Dan just had to make a joke out of it. At least he hasn't lost his sense of humor.
