While a truck driver slept in the cab of his parked vehicle, thieves were up to no good mere feet away. The BBC reports that they cut a hole in the side of the truck on Monday night and made off with some 6,400 cans of Heinz baked beans. Says a police rep in all seriousness: "Police are appealing for information, especially about anyone trying to sell large quantities of Heinz baked beans in suspicious circumstances." One additional identifying note: The variety stolen contained "sausages." (More baked beans stories.)
