There was a gigantic maple syrup heist

Quebec was the locale for the biggest maple syrup robbery in history. In 2012, sticky-fingered thieves stole about 6 million gallons of syrup from the reserves kept by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers (FPAQ); those 6 million gallons were worth about $18 million. Though over twenty people have been arrested in conjunction with the heist, the totality of the syrup has yet to be recovered.
