DailyDirt: Big Food Heists

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Who hasn't sampled some grapes at the grocery store before buying a bunch? That's a pretty minor theft, and presumably one that stores take into account when they're pricing grapes. The really big problems are when huge amounts of food go missing. Recently, there have been a few bizarre food-related heists, and in case you missed them, here they are. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Stolen food?

    It's just so hard to swallow. I can't stomach why anyone would do such.

    Missing Maple Syrup Suspects

    I suggest questioning a certain penelope and ralph. They've been known to break into factories, using large quantities of resources in their unlicensed kart production efforts.

    "An investigation is still on-going to find out who could be behind such a sickly sweet score. "

    Now don't sugar coat it.
