They have the makings for a great party, but thieves who stole $400,000 in beer and snacks from a Quebec warehouse apparently have other plans. On the night of March 12, Montreal police say "several" thieves broke into the warehouse in the Montreal suburb of Boucherville and disabled security cameras and an alarm. They then loaded 20,000 cases of Grolsch beer, dried beef, and Jack Link's pepperoni into three delivery trucks that were eventually found abandoned, report CBC and the Canadian Press. Police say the thieves have begun approaching unsuspecting merchants looking to sell the goods. "We just started receiving calls that this beer is being distributed," says one police official.
