MILWAUKEE – Police have recovered about $70,000 worth of cheese stolen from a suburban Milwaukee trucking company.

Germantown police say on their Facebook page that the cheese was found in Milwaukee Friday evening. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that no one has been arrested.

A 54-foot long trailer containing the cheese was stolen early Friday from D and G Transportation in Germantown, which is northwest of Milwaukee.

A semitrailer used to steal the trailer was recovered later Friday and the empty trailer was also found about 10 a.m. Friday in the Milwaukee area, police said.

It’s not clear exactly where in Milwaukee the stolen cheese was found.
