The Volusia County, Fla., Sheriff's Office said it received a call on Dec. 8 about a stolen vehicle, according to a police report. While the Freightliner Cascadia is valued at about $90,000 and the trailer is worth $19,000, it's the precious cargo inside that may or may not have inspired robbers to go on a sweet spree.
The truck was full of $120,000 worth of Hershey Chocolate.
Hershey did not respond to a request for comment.
Local television station News 13, said the driver of the stolen truck and the 911 operator could at least have a brief laugh about it:
911 Operator: When was the last time you saw it?
Driver: Three o'clock yesterday [Saturday] was the last time I saw the truck. It's hooked to a trailer as well, fully loaded, with chocolate.
911 Operator: Fully loaded with chocolate, huh?
Driver: Yeah, someone with a sweet tooth.
911 Operator: Well, you know, maybe that's what they were going for. Who knows?
If you see a truck with the Sun State Carriers logo with $120,000 worth of chocolate inside, tell the driver the chocolate should stay cool.
