The victim reported the theft to police, saying he had left the tractor trailer loaded with $98,000 worth of ramen noodles in Fayette County, Georgia between July 25 and August 1.
When he returned, the white 2004 Stoughton trailer was gone — noodles and all.
Lt. Allen Stevens of the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the heist to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, saying the incident happened at a Chevron.
The publication reports that the brand of noodles was not specified in a police report.
Ramen noodles can retail for 29 cents per pack — less when bought in bulk. At this price point, thieves could have stolen more than 300,000 packages of noodles. However, some ramen brands can cost more than a dollar per pack.
I’ve watched enough movies and seen enough Trailer Park Boys episodes to know that the driver is in on this heist…I also didn’t know that Ramen was a hot commodity on the black market. Someone in Georgia is about to be on the corner just slinging packs of noodles for the low low. Probably near a college campus.
