Investigators in Fayette County, Georgia, are using their noodles to figure out who stole a trailer carrying nearly $100,000 worth of ramen from a local gas station.

According to local news affiliate WAGA, the 53-foot trailer had been parked at a Chevron store on Georgia Highway 85 North, about 30 miles south of Atlanta. The trailer and its ramen noodle cargo were stolen at some point between July 25 and August 1.

Sheriff Barry Babb said that the owner of the trailer had permission to park at the Chevron store and that the trailer was “secured” at the time of the theft. The trailer is white in color, according to authorities, and has a Maine license plate with the number 202643A.

The ramen heist is just one of a string of thefts in Fayette County, a string that also included five car break-ins and one stolen motorcycle. Lt. Allen Stevens, public information officer at the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, tells ABC News there are no suspects at this time.

Additionally, Lt. Stevens tells Delish.com this is the first “ramen noodle theft [that] has ever occurred here.” The investigators currently don’t have a motive for the crime.

As Delish notes, the thief ought not to consume too much of the ramen. A 2014 study linked instant noodles with an increased risk of metabolic syndrome. Study author Dr. Frank B. Hu told The New York Times that eating instant noodles “once or twice a month is not a problem, but a few times a week really is.”
