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.

A load of waffle. It was those Russian bears, coming across the Bering Straits that did it.

When apprehended, the head of that burglary ring said he felt like a sap.
