Quebec Police Discovers Stolen Maple Syrup

The Quebec police made an announcement on Tuesday declaring that it has discovered the stolen stash of massive maple syrup heist after months-long multi-jurisdictional search. It was mentioned that three suspects have been arrested during the recovery, which are allegedly responsible for the theft of a large quantity of the national condiment from a warehouse in Quebec.

The police report claims that as much as 2.7 million kilos of maple syrup was found missing during a routine inventory check last summer. Police now declared that majority of the lost syrup has been successfully recovered, while three vehicles were also taken under custody, which it suspects were used to transport the equipment like scales and electronic lifts. Police claims that arrested suspects will now be trialed in a Trois-Rivieres courtroom for the charges of theft, conspiracy, fraud and trafficking in stolen goods on Tuesday.

Quebec provincial police officer, Claude Denis, stated that “this investigation is not over.” He explained that “It’s ongoing, and other arrests could follow.” It was also highlighted during the announcement that RCMP, the Canada Border Services Agency and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have all assisted and collaborated with the Quebec provincial police during the investigation. The investigation involved interviewing more than 300 people related to the maple syrup industry in Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and the northern U.S. The theft was reported after a routine inventory check at a warehouse owned by the Quebec Federation of Maple Syrup Producers in St-Louis-de-Blandford, Que. Denis mentioned that “two-thirds of stolen syrup was recovered.”
