Reports today indicate for the second time in a week, a load of stolen cheese worth tens of thousands of dollars has been recovered by police in Wisconsin.

According to Marshfield Police Lt. Darren Larson, about 41,000 pounds of parmesan cheese worth about $90,000 was stolen from a Marshfield distributor on Jan. 15, the AP reported. Police said a semi picked up the load, but it never arrived at its intended destination in Illinois.

The entire shipment was found in a warehouse by police in Grand Chute thanks to a tip received by investigators.

Earlier this week, a $70,000 load of cheddar and other cheeses stolen from a distribution center was recovered in Milwaukee.
