ATLANTA, G.A. — Fayette County Deputies continue their search for a Georgia man who allegedly stole nearly $100,000 worth of ramen noodles.
According to Fox 5 Atlanta, the thief drove off with a 53-foot trailer holding mass quantities of instant noodles that he found parked at a Chevron store off of Georgia Interstate Highway 85 North. Officials say the incident occurred sometime between July 25th and August 1st.
The driver secured the trailer prior to the supposed time of theft, a local sheriff says. The owner of the truck estimates that the trailer contained approximately $98,000 worth of soup.
Although the brand of the missing ramen remains unknown, a single pack of Maruchan instant noodles goes for only $0.29 on Target.com and at other retailers. In that case, it is possible that the stolen trailer held over 300,000 packages of ramen.
So far, no arrests have been made, but officials continue seeking information on the whereabouts of the suspect, as well as investigating a string of other recent thefts tied to motor vehicles in the area.
