Three Canadians Arrested in Syrup Warehouse Theft
December 18, 2012
The police in Quebec arrested three men on Tuesday in the theft of about six million pounds of maple syrup from an unguarded warehouse in St.-Louis-de-Blandford, southwest of Quebec City.
The warehouse is operated by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, a marketing agency, as part of its “global strategic maple syrup reserve.” The thefts, which had begun a year earlier, ended in July.
The investigation recovered about two-thirds of the stolen syrup in other parts of Canada and in the Northeastern United States, the authorities said. The police were searching for five other men who are suspects.
