Thieves make off with $500k worth of beer and pepperoni in Canada

Police in the city of Longueuil in Quebec have called on the public to help them identify the thieves who stole almost 20,000 cases of beer, dried beef and pepperoni worth almost C$500,000.

According to the National Post, the goods were stolen on 12 March from a warehouse in the Boucherville district of the city.

The beer, believed to be cases of Grolsch, as well as the cured meat, were taken from three delivery lorries parked at the site.

Police spokesman Jean-Pierre Voutsinos added that the thieves drove off with the beer and meat before dumping the trucks.

The vehicles were later located in Montreal, but without their contents.

The police claim that the thieves are approaching businesses and attempting to sell their spoils. Authorities are asking local retailers to be wary of people selling large quantities of Grolsch beer and Jack Link’s brand dried beef and pepperoni.

Voutsinos told CTV News: “They disabled the alarm system, broke into the warehouse, and there was some coming back and forth during the night, so they came more than once.

“We’re just trying to reach out to the storeowners because we know they (the suspects) have started to try to distribute their stolen goods. So people have been reached already and we’re hoping some people will come forth to give us some information”.
