Kellogg's Cereal Bars


That’s probably enough cereal bars to last a lifetime!

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and these thieves seemed to have really taken those words to heart when they stole cereal bars from a trailer truck. Either that or they were just very hungry.

Thieves in Scotland stole approximately 20,000 pounds of Kellogg’s cereal bars worth about $70,000 at 2:30 a. m. on October 8. The truck was parked at Lockerbie Lorry Park, located in Dumfries and Galloway in the southwestern region of Scotland. The park is a facility for trailer truck drivers to take a rest stop.

Detective constable Martin Lumsden from the Scotland Criminal Investigations Department believes that the thieves carefully planned out stealing that many cereal bars.


“We are reviewing closed-circuit television footage and want to hear from anyone who may have been in or around the area of the lorry park around the time of this theft,” Lumsden told BBC News, “or indeed the hours and days prior to the theft as those responsible may have been in area carrying out some form of reconnaissance and planning.”
