Ham thieves leave festive greeting

Police are appealing for help as they investigate the robbery of 16 tonnes of ham and bacon from a warehouse in Sydney's north-west.

Sometime between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, thieves broke into Zammit Ham and Bacon on Nirvana Road at Pendle Hill.

Acting Inspector Rod Ormes from Parramatta Police says they left the message "Merry Christmas" on the warehouse wall.

He says it's an unusual thing for a criminal to do.

"I certainly haven't seen a message left like that in my policing experience, no," he says.

"We're asking the public if they come across any Zammit meat products being sold at significantly reduced prices to contact Crime Stoppers or us here at Parramatta Police Station".

i think there is an obvious connection between this and the robbery in Ireland.
