Case of $20M in Stolen Maple Syrup Solved (Somewhat) in Canada…Was it Mrs. Butterworth?

By anyone’s standards, $20M in Maple syrup is a lot of sweet, sticky goodness and when it’s stolen, as you can imagine, it’s a pretty big deal for many reasons, not the least of which is, pancakes just aren’t the same without it…

Between August 2011 and July of this year, 10, 000 barrels of the Maple gold was pilfered from a warehouse east of Montreal.  Now, 3 of the suspects have been captured and two-thirds of the pilfered syrup recovered.  Cops are still looking for 5 people.

Police have also seized vehicles used to transport the syrup, which they believe was pumped into tanker trucks at the heavily secured (really?) location.

Quebec produces up to 80% of the world’s maple syrup every year, and the province’s syrup producers federation has managed the world’s strategic reserves for the past 12 years!
