I happen to know everything there is to know about maple syrup. I love maple syrup! I love it on pancakes, I love it on pizza! I love to take maple syrup and put a little bit in my hair when I've had a rough week. What do you think holds it up, slick?

I totally LOL'd on this. Love that movie. Cool

I honestly don't understand what the thieves are going to do with the merchandise. Open up a roadside maple syrup stand or something?

Thank god the robbers didn't leave anyone in the trenches, taking grenades.

What if Canada stole it's own syrup, if not to just make some news for themselves?

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".

POIs include Mrs. Butterworth and her Aunt Jemima

First of all, "global strategic reserve" of syrup? Shows the priorities of a nation right there.

Secondly, here are my prime suspects:

Police in Canada have recovered more than 600 barrels of maple syrup as part of an investigation into a multi-million dollar heist. The seized syrup was being transported under police protection from New Brunswick to Quebec, officials said Wednesday.

The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers reported large quantities of syrup missing last month during a routine inventory, finding empty barrels at a site of the province's global strategic reserve at St-Louis-de-Blandford. Quebec provincial police Sgt. Christine Coulombe said Wednesday police executed a search warrant in Kedjwick, New Brunswick, last week, but would not provide more information as the investigation was ongoing.

The shipment of the pancake-topper was making its way back to Quebec in a heavily guarded convoy of 16 trailer-loads on Wednesday.
