To Catch a Thief

Being a bit of a foodie myself, I find this story pretty funny. My brother, Joe, is the store manager at a gourmet grocery store in Bend. Apparently for about the last year, someone has been swiping the high-end balsamic vinegar. It has gotten to the point that they’ve put up a surveillance camera and dubbed this person the Balsamic Vinegar Bandit. The story has now been picked up by the AP.

“A sign hangs amid the bottles of vinegar at Newport Avenue Market. It’s simple, to the point: “Thanks to the Balsamic Vinegar Thief this area is now under surveillance. We will get you.” The last sentence, it should be noted, is underlined…”

Here’s the rest of the story.
