I’m a little bit of a goodie-two-shoes. Just last week, I returned something that Amazon sent me by accident (and didn’t charge me for) and I called the bank to correct a $375 deposit into my account that wasn’t mine. Hell, one time I even went back to the movie theater once I discovered that the concession kid had given me an extra $20.00 in change. But if I ever was to convert to a life of crime, there is one thing that could probably drive me to it: my love of cheese. And apparently, there are already some thieves in Wisconsin that I could just hook up with.
Early Friday morning, burglars stole a cheese-filled trailer in Germantown, WI. And by filled, I’m not kidding: police report there was $70,000 worth of “cheese product” stolen in the heist. There is no word if we are talking about 35,000 two-dollar cans of fake Parmesan or a few tons of really good imported Brie. Not that it really matters – FREE CHEESE!
Alas, the cheese-loving
heroes bandits didn’t get the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Although no arrests have been made, detectives from the Germantown Police Department located the stolen goods later Friday evening in Milwaukee.
Interestingly, this cheese caper is not the only one to hit Wisconsin recently. According to Mashable, “Almost $90,000 worth of Parmesan went missing from a facility in Marshfield, almost 200 miles northwest of Germantown” the week before.
While police have said that the cheese heists appear unrelated, you never know. We could be looking at a cheese-theft ring here. And if that’s the case, I implore the thieves to send me 3 pounds of imported Parmesan-Reggiano to turn themselves in. A life of crime isn’t worth it – even if it’s for the gift of the diary gods. .
