Teen busted for stealing $160K worth of cheese

HACKENSACK, N.J. — A teenager in New Jersey was arrested Wednesday, accused of stealing $160,000 worth of a specialty cheese.

Darluis Ortiz, 18, allegedly stole pallets containing Jamaican cheese at the Tastee Cheese warehouse on Sept. 23, according to PIX11. The processed cheese, fortified with nutrients, is packaged in tins, and is especially enjoyed with spiced buns at Easter, according to the Tastee Cheese website.

A two-week police investigation helped nab Ortiz, who was taken into custody without incident, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office. Ortiz was charged with burglary, theft and related charges. He is being held in jail on $150,000 bail.
