In what could be the most Portland crime ever, the hapless driver of a refrigerated truck for a Seattle natural-foods wholesaler reported his tofu-laden vehicle stolen Tuesday, the Oregonian reports. The driver made a morning stop at a Safeway, but came back out after 20 minutes or so to find the truck was gone. It was found a few hours later, about three miles from where it was taken, but its load of what the Oregonian labels "flavorless soybean product" and organic juice was gone, authorities say. A witness told cops a man and woman had abandoned the truck; the value of its tofu haul isn't known. (A Tennessee woman's "ILOVETOFU" caused quite a scandal.)
