A couple in Fort Oglethorpe, Tennessee, were arrested for shoplifting from Walmart. Police found $600 worth of merchandise in their car. Half of that value was in cheese- there were 57 blocks of it! Joshua and Erika Caldwell, both 21, are facing charges of theft and drug possession.
It's not clear why the couple decided to steal that much cheese or what they were planning on doing with all of it. But they did have their child with them, though, and police found pot in their car.
"The officer noticed a lot of cheese in places throughout the vehicle and the diaper bag for the child as well," said Fort Oglethorpe Police Chief David Eubanks.
Joshua Caldwell's car looked a lot like the Walmart dairy section when police found it last week. Fifty-seven blocks of stolen cheese were stuffed in the floorboards, in bags and throughout the vehicle.
Maybe they had the munchies. However, throughout history, cheese has proven to be the most stolen food item in the world. They were also in possession of ten bottles of Tide laundry detergent, which is commonly stolen and resold. The Caldwells are currently out on bond. -via Arbroath
