Two women stole about $600 worth of gourmet cheese from a Bend, Oregon Whole Foods by simply asking for a box and walking out of the store. Their bounty included a $300 wheel of nine-month aged Gouda, and two wheels of blue cheese worth $270.

It seems almost too easy. The women walk into the store, pick up the Gouda wheel and ask for a box, which an employee provides. They box up the wheel, snatch two wheels of blue cheese, one walks to the register and the other leaves with the dairy.

Despite being caught on camera, the women are still at large, though police are investigating leads. So if anyone in the Bend, Oregon area happens to attend a party with a serious amount of cheese...
