Someone In Georgia Stole A Big Truck With Nearly $100K Worth Of Ramen Noodles Inside

The bandit behind the high-sodium heist remains on the loose.

This thief wasn't noodling around.

Georgia deputies are on the lookout for Ramen ― not for lunch, but in a stolen truck carrying nearly $100,000 of the starchy substance.

The 53-foot truck was taken between late July and early August after its owner parked the vehicle, stocked full of dehydrated noodle bricks, at a Fayette County Chevron on July 25, according to The Citizen in Fayetteville.

When the owner returned, the truck and trailer were gone, deputies said, and so were the $98,000 worth of noodles stored within.

The owner of the gas station said the truck hadn't been towed, so they tried to check with other drivers who parked in the area to see if they saw or heard anything. No luck there either.

The 2004 Stoughton Se, with Maine license plates, was locked and secured at the time, Fayette County Sheriff Barry Babb said.

Police are actively searching for the missing meals, and anyone with information is urged to call Fayetteville authorities.

Twitter users, unsurprisingly, were quick to make light of the high-sodium heist.
