A UK Bloke Had His Heist Plans Foiled After He Was Caught Stealing 200,000 Creme Eggs

A 32-year-old bloke in the UK is facing two years in prison after he admitted he was behind the theft of nearly 200,000 Cadbury Creme Eggs. This has got to be the heist of the century, hands down. Per The GuardianJoby Pool

used a metal grinder to break into an industrial unit northwest of Birmingham on Saturday. He then used a previously-stolen semi-trailer cab (known in the UK as a “tractor unit”) to nick a trailer full of the choccy eggs worth more than AUD$50,000 (£31,000). He drove that truck with the trailer full of Creme Eggs and other choccy treats to the motorway, where he was spotted by police and handed himself over. “[He] gave up at junction 11 and walked towards the police with his hands up,” prosecutor  told Kidderminster magistrates court. “He was arrested and the load was recovered.” Imagine driving along the freeway and suddenly you come across a bloke with a trailer that’s absolutely chockers with Easter eggs being arrested on the side of the road. What was he even planning to do with 200,000 Creme Eggs anyway? It’s almost as baffling as seeing the Easter Bunny itself. Can’t imagine anyone would believe the story when you recounted the whole thing down at the pub later on. Pool pled guilty to theft and criminal damage and is expected to be jailed next month for roughly two years. He has previously been convicted of theft and driving while disqualified in 2019. His defence solicitor  told the courts the stolen chocolates were not interfered with and “will be in a condition that they can go back on the shelves”. Yum, delicious crime Creme Eggs. The perfect treat for Easter this year.
