2012-09-01 07:28

St-Louis-De-Blandford - Quebec police are on the lookout for thieves with a sweet tooth after a considerable amount of maple syrup disappeared from a large warehouse stocking over $30m worth of the amber nectar.

Quebec police’s Claude Denis said on Friday it was too soon to determine the exact quantity or value of the syrup stolen from the facility where over £10m is stored.

The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers says they discovered the missing syrup during a routine inventory where empty barrels were found at the site at St-Louis-de-Blandford, Quebec.

Quebec produces 70% to 80% of the world's maple syrup.
