SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — A thief in Puerto Rico has gotten away with the makings for one giant omelette.

Police in the U.S. territory say they are looking for someone who stole more than $22,000 worth of chicken eggs. They didn’t specify exactly how many eggs are in the missing shipment.

Officers said Friday that a refrigerated truck parked in a distribution center in the north coastal town of Hatillo was taken along with the eggs inside.

Authorities said the truck was worth $35,000.
