Maple syrup mafia? Quebec police arrest 18 people after massive maple syrup heist

In New York, the mob does things like the 1967 Air France robbery, depicted in the movie, GoodFellas.

In Canada, insiders steal maple syrup.

Quebec police are saying 18 people have now been arrested in a massive maple syrup heist.

The accused face a variety of charges including theft, conspiracy, fraud and receiving stolen goods.

Provincial police said in a statement today they are looking for seven more people in the case.

The sweet stuff was stolen in the town of Saint-Louis-de-Blandford between August 2011 and this past July.

About 2.7 million kilograms of maple syrup, worth up to $18 million, was reported missing after a routine inventory check last summer.
