Chicago police are scratching their heads after a massive produce theft yesterday saw the disappearance of a 20 foot and a 40 foot trailer full of asparagus, chocolate cream cookies, and fungicide powder.
A week ago, a similar theft saw the disappearance of US$50,000 worth of broccoli [SN Reported]. Police are now searching for a total of four missing tractor trailers. Speculation has it that the thieves are after the trailers, not their contents.
"What is someone going to do with that amount of produce?" said a police detective. "Unless the thief is a true vegetarian or something, I don't think the broccoli was the motivation." The investigation is ongoing.
