Nearly 20,000 cases of Grolsch beer stolen from warehouse near Montreal.
Police south of Montreal appealed to the public Thursday to help them find thieves who recently made off with nearly 20,000 cases of beer, dried beef and Jack Link’s brand pepperoni.
The goods, which police said were worth nearly $500,000, were stolen March 12 at a warehouse in Longueuil.
Longueuil police spokesman Jean-Pierre Voutsinos said the thieves drove off with the cases of Grolsch brand beer and the meat in three of the warehouse’s own delivery trucks.
“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,” he said in a phone interview.
The trucks were later found empty in Montreal.
Police allege the thieves have approached various businesses to sell their loot and authorities are asking merchants to be wary of people selling these goods.
Police also reminded people they can be charged if they buy property obtained through crime.
