Two Californian Men Arrested After Stealing Cheese

Two men were arrested after more than two years of being a part of a long-running cheese theft ring (yes, apparently that is a thing) in several countries. Noticing $50,000 worth of cheese missing, police started their investigation and were led to 24-year old Jairo Maiano Osorio Alvares and 34-year-old Rodrick Domingo Ransom  of Lemoore, California. The stolen cheese was being sold through different means, as Oddee detailed: 

Leprino Foods is the largest producer of mozzarella. The store that was stolen from is in Lemoore, which sits between Fresno and Bakersfield, California. 
Police detectives found that the stolen product was being sold throughout Fresno, Tulare, Kings, and Riverside through social media, door-to-door salesmen, on the street or even flea markets. 
“Leprino employees said that they found their stolen cheese on social media sites. Every part of their cheese, the cheese blocks, is serialized. So they were able to see the serial number on their block cheese,” said Detective Cpl. Osvaldo Maldonado, who is working the case.
