Detroit police say thousands of dollars of pickles, bloody mary mix and chips may have been pilfered from a pickle company and sold by some area stores at cut-rate prices.

Detective Mike Pacteles says an inventory at McClure's Pickles in Detroit prompted concerns. The Detroit News reports the theft totaling more than $13,000 included 58 cases of chips worth $710 and $486 in Bloody Mary mix. The pickles were in 5- and 1-gallon containers.

Pacteles says five area stores were found selling products at bargain prices. Store owners or workers could face charges if they got the products illegally.

Asked about the theft and investigation, McClure's CEO Bob McClure told the newspaper: "I have my team on this and we are trying to get answers."
