Burglars stole £12,000 (about $19,000) worth of cookies from the Burton’s Biscuit Company factory in Cwmbran, Wales, on June 17, which poses the question: who stole the cookies from the cookie factory?
The cookies were hoisted onto a trailer and dumped about 160 miles away from the factory, according to South Wales Argus. It is not confirmed what variety of cookies were stolen.
Burton’s Biscuit Company produces U.K. cookie and biscuit favorites like Jammie Dodgers, Wagon Wheels, Mini Maryland Choc Chip Cookies, and Cathedral City Baked Bites. A spokesperson from Burton’s told South Wales Argus that “This is an isolated incident and we’re currently working closely with South Wales police in their ongoing investigation of the theft.”
Burton’s Biscuit has two other facilities in Blackpool and Edinburgh, along with a chocolate refinery in Moreton on Merseyside. The central distribution hub is located in Liverpool. Burton’s also has a license with Cadbury’s to produce Caramel, Crunchie, Dairy Milk, Fingers, and Bourneville biscuits.
