Thief Steals $30M Worth of Maple Syrup from Warehouse

Kim Mackrael and Rita Trichur, writing for The Globe and Mail:

Quebec police are on the hunt for a sticky-fingered thief after millions of dollars of maple syrup vanished from a Quebec warehouse.

The theft was discovered during a routine inventory check last week at the St-Louis-de-Blandford warehouse, where the syrup is being held temporarily. The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, which is responsible for the global strategic maple syrup reserve, initially kept the news quiet, hoping it would help police solve the crime quickly.

About 10 million pounds of syrup was stored at the site, at a value of more than $30-million.

I bet whomever took the stuff is eating a whole lot of pancakes, or at least he/she will be.
