One Sweet Haul

Trailer with 20 tons of chocolate stolen
MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (UPI) -- Police said a semi-trailer containing more than 20 tons of Hershey's chocolate candy has been stolen from a Michigan City, Ind., truck stop. LaPorte County Police Chief of Detectives John Boyd said the thieves likely did not know what the trailer contained, as it was only labeled with the trucking company's name and the amount of stolen chocolate may be too large to be practical for black market sales. Truck driver Daryl Rey, 58, said he left the trailer Saturday at the Gas City truck stop on U.S. 421 and he returned the next day to find the 53-foot-long trailer, which contained 41,000 pounds of chocolate treats, had been stolen. He said the hidden satellite tracking device had been removed from the trailer, leading him to theorize professional thieves may have taken the load.
