ST-LOUIS-DE-BLANDFORD, Quebec (AP) Police in Quebec were following the scent of something sweet millions of dollars' worth of maple syrup missing from a large warehouse stocking over $30 million worth of the amber nectar. The theft puts a cavity-sized dent in Quebec's syrup stock, considered to be a global strategic reserve of the sweet stuff that is often used to replenish markets during disappointing seasons. Quebec produces up to 80 percent of the world's maple syrup.

The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers said it discovered the missing syrup last week during a routine inventory where empty barrels were found at the site at St-Louis-de-Blandford, Quebec. Officials initially kept the news quiet, hoping it would help police solve the crime.

Anne-Marie Granger Godbout, the executive director of the federation, said that while it isn't unusual for individual maple syrup producers to have stock stolen, having millions worth of syrup stolen is "unusual".

What do you do with the maple syrup once you've stolen it? Pretty difficult to find a buyer i'd imagine.

This is my favourite story ever.

How did they do it?

Why?

What the **** are they planning on doing with it?!

Where do you even keep $30 million worth of stolen maple syrup?

Could there possibly be some secret underground demand for maple syrup?


This would only happen in Canada, I love it Laughing We don't steal money or jewellery here, we steal maple syrup!

In unrelated news, Rochdale is going to make the largest five stack in the world.

This sounds like a crime a villian from Dispicable Me would try.
