WHYALLA, Australia – Police were Tuesday conducting a manhunt for thieves who made off with 93 pounds of mayonnaise from a business in South Australia.
Two 46-pound tubs of the condiment went missing from a refrigerated warehouse in Whyalla, about 237 miles north of the capital city Adelaide on Saturday.
In a statement, police said they were puzzling over why anyone would want to steal 93 pounds of mayonnaise.
They urged anyone who heard of people making large quantities of coleslaw or potato salad to notify authorities.
