Man arrested for stealing 200,000 chocolate eggs

A 32-year-old Briton was arrested by police on Monday in connection with an investigation into the theft of 200,000 chocolate eggs in the Birmingham area of northwestern United Kingdom.

The man, who admitted the facts, faces about two years in prison for theft and degradation.

It was the previous Saturday that the cargo was stolen from an industrial site in the town of Telford, in the county of Shropshire. Estimated at around 45,000 euros according to the police, it contained the eggs and other types of confectionery, all from the iconic British brand Cadbury.

Joby Pool, a freelance and homeless construction worker, reportedly entered the site in the middle of the night at the wheel of a stolen truck in October after forcing a padlocked chain, relay several British media including The Independent and The Guardian.
