A vehicle filled with ramen noodles was stolen from a petrol station in Georgia, US
A tractor full of ramen noodles worth nearly $100,000 was stolen from a petrol station in the US state of Georgia. The noodle crook is still on the run, no arrests have been made so far.
The victim of the heist says that the robbery occurred sometime in the last week of July and that he returned to the 53-foot trailer to find that $98,000 worth of noodles – and the white 2004 Stoughton trailer holding the goods – had been stolen, reports The Independent.
The heist has been confirmed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution by Lt Allen Stevens of the Fayette County Sheriff’s office. He told the newspaper the incident occurred at a petrol station.
The trailer was last seen by other drivers on 29 July, according to the police report.
Given a 29 cent per pack retail value, it would mean that the crook or crooks snagged more than 300,000 packages of the foodstuff, reports The Independent.
The owner of the tractor trailer said that he had received permission to park the vehicle on the property before leaving it there for several days.
