Arizona town opens time capsule, minus brandy

Posted: Updated:

SOMERTON, Ariz. (AP) -- Somerton is missing a bottle of brandy.

When officials of the Arizona community opened a time capsule Saturday, they discovered town history - all except a bottle of brandy that was supposed to be in the capsule buried 25 years ago.

Somerton street and solid waste supervisor Pancho Soto was part of the crew that buried the time capsule.

He says he was surprised when it was opened and there was no bottle of brandy.

Soto says it was there when the crew buried the capsule.

The time capsule did contain letters from Somerton residents, photographs, a VHS tape and a 1981 Time magazine with a picture of President Ronald Reagan on the cover.
