Who is Theo Dekker? 

The chairman of Association of farm and dairy products. He keeps a check on authenticity on milk based products. Dekker told Omroep Brabant that cheese purloining is not just a loss to a particular organization. It is a risk to multiple future thefts.Theo demonstrates the theft as ‘well-organized crime’ it included experienced criminals.

Who can get the job done? 

According to Dekker, the thievery is done by someone who has probably explored the farm. As they knew well what to pack and how to pack. Theo also told Omroep Brabant, ‘we are a bit afraid of this’. As the thieves don’t have any fear they just get into the farm, dump their buses and move away.

What attracted the thieves?

Dekker mentioned well, cheese is stolen because of its high price. It can give a huge payout to whoever sells it.Due to demands, cheese doesn’t stay at a place for a long time. Crossing the Dutch borders, cheese moves to Easten Europe.Selling stolen goods is quite an odd job. I mean who likes buying stolen items?
