Canada doesn't strike us, or most others, as having that much of a criminal side.
But, a recent heist has rocked our friendly neighbors in the north to the very core -- its maple syrup core, that is.
According to reports, some sticky thieves made off with the liquid gold from a distribution center about a hundred miles outside of Montreal back in August. The bandits covered their tracks by siphoning out 16,000 45-gallon drums, filling up a tanker truck, and leaving the empty barrels.
If you don't have a calculator handy that's 720,000 gallons of pilfered maple syrup. And if you wondering what's the big deal, the value of that much delicious (and pure) pancake topper is worth about $20 million.
Thankfully, Royal Mounted Police recovered the stolen syrup last week in Kedgwick, more than 300 miles from where it was stolen. But, no one was arrested.
Did the mastermind behind the great maple syrupy robbery of 2012 get away?
