Vermont firm implicated in $20M of stolen maple syrup

It seems there has been a lot of maple syrup-related crime lately. Maybe the idea that Vermont should go to the maple syrup standard (like the gold standard) isn’t so far-fetched. People just want the stuff. From the Montreal Gazette:

MONTREAL — It’s another chapter in the great Maple Syrup Theft Caper, one that now transcends international borders.

A Vermont maple sugar candy producer is alleged to have been caught with 12 tanker trucks worth of stolen syrup, traced back to the $20-million theft of the golden elixir from a central warehouse in a small Quebec town about 160 kilometres northeast of Montreal.
