Thieves steal mustard and ketchup

Austrian police say thieves have made off with an unusual heist — 21 tonnes of mustard and ketchup.

The loot was in a semi-trailer parked in a lot over a weekend northwest of Vienna. Police say the truck driver showed up to deliver his cargo only to see the trailer missing.

Police assume the thieves were more interested in the trailer than its contents.

Authorities had no price tag for the stolen condiments but said the trailer was worth about €15,000.
