For the third time this year, a large amount of cheese has been reported stolen in Wisconsin.
Police in the Milwaukee suburb of Oak Creek say a semi-truck carrying 20,000 pounds of Wisconsin’s signature food product from Green Bay to New York was stolen from a parking lot, after the driver had left his rig parked there for several hours. Investigators say they’re working with the company that made the cheese, along with the owner of the parking lot.
Back in January, $70,000 worth of cheese was stolen from a warehouse in Germantown — and a few days later, 41,000 pounds of cheese worth $90,000 was stolen from a facility in Marshfield. In both those cases, the cheese was recovered.
