600 barrels of maple syrup have been seized by Canadian police.  The syrup was found in New Brunswick at a syrup exporter and is worth millions of dollars. MSN reported that it is part of an investigation in the theft of millions of dollars worth of the sticky stuff.

MSN reported that The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers reported a large quantity of syrup missing during a routine inventory check last month" finding empty barrels at a site of the province's global strategic reserve at St-Louis-de-Blandford."

80 percent of the world's maple syrup is produced in Quebec, Yahoo! News reported.

S.K Export Inc., when visited by authorities said usual suppliers sold them the syrup, reported The Daily Mail.

Etienne St, Pierre, a local exporter of maple syrup said to the Associated Press that police approached him to search his business in the investigation. "They came in and said we're taking everything, there wasn't much I could do."

The barrels of syrup are being taken back to Quebec in 16 trucks, the AP reported.

St-Pierre's company exports maple syrup to Europe, the United states and Asia. He stated that he gets the syrup directly from his producers and "He said he had received the syrup that police seized from the same sources he uses every year and does not believe it was part of the missing bounty," reported The Chicago Tribune.

The great syrup heist is still currently under investigation with authorities speaking with producers and those in the syrup business to take lie detector test, lawyer Sarto Landry told Reuters. "There's no proof at this point. Syrup can't be tracked like a car," he said.
