Police probing Quebec maple syrup heist worth up to $30-million
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.
Instead of stealing the barrels the maple syrup was in, they drained it out, and left the barrels! I wonder how long they spent on it?
