Cops rice to bring ‘food thief’ to boil
It's a bizarre loot of stolen food products worth thousands of dollars, including several large bags of rice that would have taken serious muscle to steal and an army to eat.
But there it is, neatly stacked on the living room floor of northeastern suburbs home, more than a week after it was stolen from a Wingfield warehouse.
Police tracked the haul to a Wynn Vale house after a man raided the Cox St storage facility sometime between December 27-29.
What the man allegedly responsible had to grain is unclear, but the 28-year-old from Broadview now finds himself in a sticky situation.
He was reported for serious criminal trespass and theft.
He will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date, where justice will be served.
