How dumb are crooks these days. Somewhere in Canada there are thieves with nearly 50,000 cans of beer they will have a hard time selling, although police said Thursday the truck driver who disappeared with the loot has been arrested.
 


The news has gotten out, and if these guys try and sell the beer, it will be pretty obvious that it is stolen. The shipment of Moosehead beer, worth over $75,000 (Canadian) was heading to Mexico from it's birthplace in a East Coast brewery. Well, it didn't get there.

Why are people so low that they need to do this sort of thing? The guy is working at a truck driver, and desides that he wants to make 75 grand? The guy makes more than that a year. And now, chances are he's going to lose his job. I wish people would think before they act more often.

The shipment of Moosehead was labeled in English and Spanish for export to Mexico, so it could not be sold in Canada. Nor could it be shipped into or through the United States without proper documentation.

"They can't sell it anywhere in Canada without giving away the immediate fact that it's been stolen... So we have crooks stuck with 50,000 plus cans of beer that basically they can't fence."

Not alot of the beers have been found yet. They found a few cans - most of them empty - in various parts of the New Brunswick province.

Then they found about 5,000 more in a 1/2 ton truck with a trailer.

Crime doesn't pay, morons.

This is an absolute tragedy.

There is nothing left evil to happen in the world.

Who said they want to sell those beers. Maybe they are planning one hell of a party no BYOB.

This does seem to be a stupid crime to lose your job over though. If the guy was driving a Dunbar truck it might be another story but a beer truck

When your idea of a first date involves burning down her village you might be a viking

If you finish you European vacation with more money than when you started,you might very well be a Viking.

Where did this guy work making over 75,000/year.... Truck drivers don't usually make that much, and I don't believe that the conversion rate between the two currencies (US and Canadian) would make that much of a difference.
Maybe the terrorists have plans to make some guards very, very, drunk?

You don't seriously believe they would try and sell it? It's only a 2 months supply of beer.

I just heard hundreds of wedding dresses were stolen from a store in Vancouver. Perhaps it is related. Hundreds of wedding dresses, a thousand guns, and 50,000 beers
Im not liking where this is going.

Be afraid be very afraid

I had nothing to do with it. I, uh, was uh, asleep. Yeah, yeah, that's it, I was asleep.


Seriously though, it's Moosehead, as pointed out above, who would want it? Moosehead Premium? Maybe.

Beers, guns, wedding dresses.

Sounds like a Canadian Hillbilly, shotgun, mass wedding.

Better check on the relatives.

The average is around $30,000 to around $45,000, but some get well over 100,000. To make 75,000 he must of being doing it for awhile.
