Police searching for thieves who stole £134,000 worth of Kinder Bueno

Authorities have called it a ‘significant theft’

Police are looking for information regarding a theft of a whopping £134,000 worth of Kinder Buenos.

The chocolate bars went missing from a shop in Skelmersdale, Lancashire after a lorry entered the Gillibrands industrial estate at 3am on 17 March.

Lancashire Police say the lorry was then hooked up to a trailer full of Kinder Buenos, which was then driven to Simonswood in Kirkby, Merseyside.

Police later discovered the trailer, but all of the chocolate was already gone. Authorities think the Buenos had been transferred into another vehicle.

“This is a significant commercial theft, and I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious either in the area around the industrial estate or the area where the load has been transferred or the trailer has been abandoned to get in touch,” PC Holly Bennett, of Skelmersdale Police said, via ITV News.
