Wednesday 23 October 2013
Thousands of tins of baked beans have been stolen from a lorry while the driver was asleep in his cab.
A total of 6,400 tins of Heinz baked beans with sausages were taken after thieves cut a large hole in the white Scania vehicle, West Mercia Police said.
The incident happened while the truck was parked in a layby on the A441 at Cookhill, near Redditch in Worcestershire.
An entire pallet and part of a second pallet were stolen from the lorry between 8.45pm on Monday and 5.30am on Tuesday.
"Police are appealing for information, especially about anyone trying to sell large quantities of Heinz baked beans in suspicious circumstances," a force spokesman said.
