Brazen bean thieves take advantage of dozing driver to bag Heinz haul
MEMBERS of the public have been urged to be on the lookout for suspicious baked bean sellers after thieves stole thousands of tins from a lorry while the driver was asleep.
Thieves cut a hole through the side of the white Scania vehicle to access a total of 6,400 tins of Heinz baked beans with sausages.
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.
A spokesman for West Mercia Constabulary said: "Police are appealing for information, especially about anyone trying to sell large quantities of Heinz baked beans in suspicious circumstances."
