'Sweet' result following attempted chocolate theft

North Lincolnshire

19 Aug 2019

Two men have been arrested in connection with the theft of chocolate from a HGV parked up just off the M180 near Scawby.

It happened just after 2am this morning Monday 19 August. 

The driver of the truck was asleep at the time, but was woken up by noises coming from his trailer. He spotted the men who were loading the chocolate onto another truck. 

Officers quickly arrived, gave chase to the men on foot and arrested two of them.

The men who are both from Leeds are currently in our custody on suspicion of theft from a motor vehicle. We’re still looking for a third man in connection with this. 

The items, which were destined for delivery to a high street store, were returned.
