20 TON CHOCOLATE CAPER…Herseys Chocolate trailer stolen…

Trailer with 20 tons of CHOCOLATE stolen…


In  MICHIGAN CITY, Indiana, Police said a semi~trailer containing more than 20 tons of Hershey’s chocolate candy has been stolen from a Michigan City, Indiana, 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.


Thank you AP News
MY, MY…20 tons of Hershey CHOCOLATE…

I think 3 Baby Boomer Momma’s on a CHOCOLATE craze could handle that CHOCOLATE heist very easily!

Personally I can think of a milliom things to make and use chocolate with.

AND…I think someone should check out Willie Wonka!  Just where was his whereabouts, when this caper went down???
