Much of a huge cache of maple syrup snatched from a Quebec storage facility has been recovered, police say.
Three people have been arrested and five others are being sought in connection with the theft from a warehouse in Saint-Louis-de-Blandford, Quebec Provincial Police said in a statement Tuesday. The theft occurred between August 2011 and July 2012, police said.
These gentlemen have certainly got themselves into a very sticky situation, here. There is no time for waffling about when you commit a crime like this. Even stupid cons know if you move like molasses you can't expect to get away.
Best comment ever.
Thank heavens for a sense of humor; that was poetic!; nothing like putting a funny spin on a non-harmful situation...eeks.... sorry, except for the business owners and/or their insurance companies..... Happy holidays all!!!
Not a single one of those puns were funny, fail
LOL! That was great! Corny, but that's what makes it funny :)
Thanks for taking all the good ones, Joel! Now I'm just hungry >: |
Maple syrup is more precious than oil these men should be executed!
They were trying to drive the price up by creating a canadian maple syrup shortage. This stuff is the creme de la creme.
Thanks for the post Verity.The histogram cofnirms just how exceptional the month of Dec was.At the depth of the cold I travelled between Crumlin and Antrim a journey of about 8 Miles and was astonished to observe double-digit subzero temps the whole way in the afternoon! (OK my car's thermometer isn't calibrated, but I would think it should be within +/- 1 C)No one here remembers such unrelenting cold fortunately no water pipes froze and so far the water supply has not been interrupted.
Thank God, they spared the bacon.
I've got you covered! Get up, sir, up!
Was Buddy the Elf ever a suspect?
"If you make syrup, you didn't make that!"
