SYDNEY (Reuters) - Cheeky Australian thieves stole 16 tons of ham and bacon from a Sydney warehouse and then wrote “Thanks, Merry Christmas” on a wall, police said on Monday.

The thieves cut through a wall of the warehouse between Saturday and Sunday and stole up to A$100,000 ($88,500) worth of meat.

“Officers located a message on the wall of the building, reading, ‘Thanks, Merry Christmas’,” said a police statement.
