Bandit makes off with $187k worth of stolen cheese

Somewhere out there, there's a Canadian who really loves cheese.


CBC News reports that an unidentified man recently entered the Saputo Dairy Products in Tavistock, Canada, and posed as a delivery driver.  He furnished some official looking documents that claimed he needed to take a large quantity of their product to New Brunswick. 


The company bought it hook, line, and sinker.  They loaded the cheese -- worth $187,000 -- into a blue transport truck and the man left. 


Saputo Dairy didn't realize they had been duped until they discovered a week later that the delivery never made it to its location.


Police believe the bandit will try to sell the stolen cheese online or through stores.  Constable Ed Sanchuk believes the thief might have bitten off more than he could chew because that "is quite a large amount of cheese to get rid of." 


Police have since notified surrounding stores to report any shady people attempting to sell them cheese.
