Yes, you read it right! A bunch of thieves stole 44 tons of chocolate. The Berlin Police says two truck trailers loaded with 44 tons of chocolate were stolen in southern Germany and there’s no sign of the sticky-fingered perpetrators.
Police said Monday the trailers packed with chocolates worth 400,000 euros ($496,100) were stolen from an industrial park in Freiburg on last Friday night.
One was found Saturday hauled by a Polish truck that had stopped at a rest area near the German-French border. The driver escaped on foot and the trailer was still full of the stolen chocolate.
The second trailer was found in Lahr, also near the border with France. With this one, two-thirds of the chocolate — and the thief — were gone.
Police say they’ve launched a search for the thieves and are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
