>50,000 cans of Moosehead missing; 2 empties found

Associated Press, August 23, 2004

FREDERICTON, New Brunswick — The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are trying to solve a beer caper that occurred near Canada’s border with Maine.

The mounties are searching for 50,000 cans of Moosehead along with the driver of a tractor-trailer that was hauling the brew.

The abandoned truck has been found — along with two empty beer cans. Otherwise, the only other evidence is that the Moosehead cans are imprinted in Spanish and English. The beer was destined for a Mexican supermarket chain.

Newspaper and broadcast reports say the shipment would be worth more than $75,000 if sold on the retail level.
