GERMANTOWN, Wisc. (NBC NEWS) – Thieves made off with plenty of cheddar after swiping a trailer filled with $70,000 worth of cheese, officials said.
A semi-tractor was used to steal a trailer containing the cheese products in Germantown, Wisconsin, about 1:30 a.m. on Friday, according to a Facebook post by the local police force. The trailer was located hours later by someone who had seen the online plea — but no cheese was found.
The incident was the second cheese-related caper of the week, according to NBC affiliate WTMJ. Nearly $90,000 worth of Parmesan went missing in Marshfield just days before Friday’s robbery, Lt. Darren Larson told the station.
