SUMMERFIELD, Fla. (AP) – Hold the cheese. Thieves made off with a refrigerated tractor-trailer filled with $85,000 worth of shredded mozzarella cheese bound for a Hungry Howies Pizza distribution center in central Florida.

The truck was reported stolen Sunday.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports the driver and his girlfriend left the trailer at a truck stop in Summerfield on Saturday evening while having a mechanic check the truck.

Marion County Sheriff’s officials say the woman reported the truck was missing Sunday. Deputies say a hauler was also reported missing from the lot Saturday, presumably to take the trailer.

The missing trailer has white mud flaps with “Hudsonville Trailer Sales” on them. It also has a Michigan license plate. The trailer is valued at $62,000.
