Crooks steal 16 tonnes of ham; leave Merry Christmas message

SYDNEY, Australia - Thieves who stole 16 tonnes of ham and bacon from a warehouse in Australia left behind a message taunting the business just weeks before the holiday season.

The crooks daubed Thanks...Merry Christmas on a wall of the Zammit warehouse in suburban Sydney as they made off with their haul.

Police say the robbery occurred some time between late Saturday afternoon and dawn Sunday.

Owner Anthony Zammit says when he arrived for work, he found a hole in a wall of the building where the thieves appear to have entered.

He says the stolen meat was worth up to 88 thousand dollars.

Zammit says he is offering a reward for anyone who helps recover the meat and his company will work overtime to make sure all its Christmas orders are filled.

"We're working 24 hours a day, seven days a week and (have) put on extra staff," he said.

"We won't let anyone down."
