$43,000 for 996 bottles of Ketchup sounds a bit high to me as well. It must be a Red Sox's thing.

But there are lots of Shelby Counties—Tenn., Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, etc.

Silbertwinkie, please start back on your medication and step away from the computer.

The Land of Ketchup Kidnappers

The county seat of Selby County is Sidney.

I have spent several nights and trips to this fair city and county.

If you eat french fries this has to be a blow to epicureans missing their frits dip.

996 bottles would fit in a Suburban. It must be 996 cases.

Did any of you that didn't get it actually read the article?

"The driver, Christopher G. Kindle, 39, of Jackson Center, Ohio"

I knew times were tough in Jackson Center, but this kind of theft? Guess there is a market someplace....

I read it and missed that. The quotes in the article were from the Shelby Co., Tenn., sheriff, and the perp was from Shelby Co., Ohio. 996 bottles, or 996 cases? 996 bottles wouldn't fill a trailer or cost that much.

I'm going to take my medication and step away from my computer.

Maybe he was hoping to sell them to Airstream so they could give away a free bottle - or case - to buyers of new trailers.

Are you sure the quotes are from Shelby Cty Tennessee? Thats a long way from the scene of the crime.

Lt. James Frye is with the Shelby Cty Ohio Sheriffs Office, and good 'ol Christopher is now in residence at the Shelby Cty Ohio jailhouse.

996 LARGE containers of ketchup. They were the Food Service bulk, which IIRC are either 3 or 5 gallons per container. At 8# per gallon they would weigh in around 23,904# based on the smaller size.

well, I certainly hope that his running gear was balanced, and that he had a properly rated and installed weight-distributing hitch, not to mention, an appropriately rated tow vehicle.

FYI - I changed the title of this thread so that it would not confuse viewers to think it was about Airstream (even though it is in the off topic forum). Thanks for understanding...
