20 tonnes of Nutella and Kinder Surprises stolen in Germany

UNUSUAL – It’s an original case. German police have been searching since August 12th for a refrigerated trailer filled with pallets of “Nutella” and “Kinder surprises.” The loot was stolen from the town of Neustadt in the south-west of the country, and contains 20 tons of the famous spread and treats.

The estimated cost of the cargo is “between 50,000 and 70,000 euros”. Police do not rule out the hypothesis that the perpetrators simply wanted to steal the trailer.

While waiting to find the thieves, authorities gave instructions in a statement quoted by BFMTV: “Anyone who is offered a large amount of chocolate by unconventional means is asked to report it immediately to the police.”

The German press made the comparison with another theft, a truck loaded with thirty tons of fruit juice, stolen Sunday morning in northern Germany in the city of Wittenburg.
