Thieves Steal 400 Tonnes of Corn from a Quebec Farm
Corn Heist the Latest Agriculture Theft in Quebec
By Amanda Brodhagen, Farms.com
Quebec seems to be the hotspot when it comes to agricultural-related thefts. Only months after a bizarre maple syrup heist, thieves managed to make off with an estimated 400 tonnes of corn from a farm located near central Quebec.
It appears that the thieves went to great lengths to steal the corn, as they broke fences that were locked and were even able to manage to neutralize the alarm system, which shorted out surveillance cameras. It’s estimated that the crop value of the theft is $140,000.
Several months ago, 16,000 barrels of maple syrup were stolen in St-Louis-de-Blandford.
