Cheese slices found on multiple cars in Gillette

GILLETTE (WNE) — Gillette police investigated and found multiple instances of cheese slices left on vehicles parked outside of homes Tuesday.

The first report came in from a 27-year-old woman who said her vehicle in the 1500 block of Ohara Drive had cheese slices on it. There was no damage from the cheese, and it’s unclear what kind of cheese they were.

Several other neighbors found similar cheese placements on their cars, said Police Deputy Chief Brent Wasson.

While investigating that report, an officer found a 2008 Chevy in the 1400 block of Oshannon Drive, which is off of Ohara Drive and had cheese slices on its windows and doors.

A 2011 Toyota and a red 1994 Cadillac were found with cheese slices on their windows and doors in the 1300 block of Henry Drive that same afternoon.

There was minimal if any damage to the vehicles, and the investigation continues.

A similar incident was reported in February 2022, when a man found cheese all over his Honda in the 3000 block of Harder Drive. At that time, temperatures were well below zero, making cleanup more difficult.
