Man steals 21 tons of cheese
A man in Illinois has been accused of stealing 21 tons of Wisconsin cheese.
The man was arrested in New Jersey where authorities say that the 34-year-old man was driving a refrigerated truck carrying 42,000 pounds of Muenster cheese.
The cargo was valued at $200,000.
Authorities suspect that the man used false paperwork to obtain the cheese.
The company in which the cheese was taken from can’t guarantee the cheese hasn’t been tampered with so it did not ask for the cheese to be returned.
