Cheese Smuggling at Niagara Falls?

Rumors police on the Canadian side are being investigated for smuggling cheese across the border


NIAGARA FALLS, Ont.—If the local police are investigating a few of their own officers for smuggling cheese into Canada, they're certainly not talking about it.

Const. Derek Watson said the force cannot "deny or confirm allegations of any ongoing investigation," after a national news organization reported a few members of the Niagara Regional Police may face charges in a cheese-smuggling ring.

Albert Zappitelli, who runs Zappi's Pizza, said that for a time it seemed like "every Tom, Dick and Harry" was coming around trying to see if he might be interested in buying cheaper cheese that was coming across the border from the United States.
