Thieves Make Off with Five Tons of Nutella

April 15th, 2013

It seems that someone has nabbed five and a half tons of Nutella, the wonderful chocolate hazelnut spread that everyone should try in one’s lifetime.  The heist occurred in the German town of Bad Hersfeld after a trailer of the spread was left parked in the center of town.  The value of the Nutella was reported to be approximately $20,000 U.S. dollars.

The strange part of the story is that a truck full of Red Bull was stolen a few weeks ago from the same area and a truck full of coffee worth approximately $50,000 U.S. dollars was also stolen at a different time within the last month from the same area.

To me, this area in Bad Hersfeld is screaming for video surveillance cameras for remote monitoring.  With cameras in place and live remote viewing and/or advanced notifications based on motion detection, there should be a way to nab these thieves.
