Eps. 13 $18 Million Maple Syrup Heist

The Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist is one of the most bizarre crimes and most expensive heist in Canadian history.

Between 2011 & 2012, Avik Caron, barrel roller Richard Vallières and their band of thieves managed to steal $18.7 million Canadian worth of Quebec maple syrup from the The Canadian Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve warehouse located in Saint-Louis-de-Blandford, Quebec, to sell on the syrup black market.

This warehouse was leased by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, a government approved maple syrup cartel, responsible for managing the supply, marketing and sales of Quebec maple syrup.
