Thieves with excellent taste caught allegedly stealing wine and cheese

A gang of thieves with superior palates have been nabbed by Italian authorities after they were caught on surveillance video stealing cheese and wine.

According to NBC, during a series of heists throughout 2015 and 2016 the gang stole 16,000 bottles of wine and 168 wheels of delicious Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese thought to be worth a total of $200,000.

Parmigiano-Reggiano is reportedly a particularly prized target.

“Robberies of Parmigiano-Reggiano are very frequent because the cheese is very expensive and easy to steal and place on the market,” said Pierluigi Solano, the principal of the Institute Spallanzani agricultural college in Modena, to NBC. The college was targeted by thieves in 2015.

“It’s like stealing a car — you just sell its parts, and you’ll never know where they come from,” he added.

Well-to-do thefts aren’t unusual; last year two men were charged in the 2014 theft of incredibly rare and expensive bottles of wine from Thomas Keller’s three-Michelin-starred California restaurant, The French Laundry. Another swiped rare books from the Upper East Side.
