CHEEKY thieves have made off with 16 tonnes of ham and bacon from a Sydney warehouse, leaving the message “Thanks, Merry Christmas” daubed on a wall.
The thieves cut their way through a wall of the Zammit Ham and Bacon Curers warehouse at Pendle Hill in Sydney’s northwest, between 3.30pm (AEDT) on Saturday and 5am on Sunday.
Police found the cheeky message scrawled on the wall after they were called to the warehouse after the theft.
In Dublin, an opportunistic thief drove out of the Guinness brewery with 40,000 pints.
About 450 kegs of beer and stout were lifted from under the noses of security guards in what is believed to be the first raid on the historic St James’s Gate Brewery at Victoria Quay along the River Liffey.
