It’s not a lubricant: manhunt following 42 kilo mayo heist

 Who steals mayonnaise?

Who steals 42 kilos of mayo like it’s liquid cocaine.

Police were today conducting a manhunt for thieves who made off with 42kg of mayonnaise from a business in South Australia.

Two 21kg tubs of the condiment went missing from a refrigerated warehouse in Whyalla, about 382km north of Adelaide on Saturday.

Police said they were puzzled over why anyone would want to steal 42kg of mayonnaise.

They urged anyone who heard of people making large quantities of coleslaw or potato salad to notify authorities.
