The Ham Heist

December 5th, 2007 at 12:00am

Good evening Stuart,

Just about this ham heist, you've had a few calls about the logistics of such a heist and it does sound quite improbable.

When I first heard about it I was a bit dubious, especially with the message scrawled on the wall, and the more details I heard the more sceptical I become.

I'll leave it up to you to decide what weight you place on the following, but the few people I have spoken to who are reasonably close to the Zammit group have all told me that they believe it is an insurance scam.

It will be interesting to see the outcome of the police investigation.

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart

    I can just see the headlines now: Ham Burglar At Large.

    “Ham burglars threaten Aussie Christmas” according to the british Daily Telegraph.

    News.com.au says “Christmas hams hocked”, “Ham burglars raid store” — The Border Mail, “Takin’ The Bacon – 17.6 Tonnes Stolen” — Germany’s Short News, “Thieves Bring Home The Bacon” — Canada’s CityNews (not to be confused with the poor excuse for a newspaper by the same name in Canberra), “Goodbye … and thanks for all the ham” — Radio New Zealand.

    It’s good to see that Australia is capable of generating odd news stories, as they seem to be the domain of European countries.
