Gang who stole £20,000-worth of Jammie Dodgers and Wagon Wheels are jailed
By EvansTheCrime | Posted: April 04, 2016

Five men from Liverpool have been jailed for stealing £20,000-worth of biscuits
Five men from Liverpool have been jailed for stealing £20,000-worth of biscuits
A GANG who stole £20,000-worth of Jammie Dodgers and Wagon Wheels from a Welsh biscuit factory have been jailed - shouting "Anyone want a biscuit?" as they were sent down.

The five men, all from the Liverpool area, stole a lorry containing the tasty treats from the Burton's factory in Cwmbran on June 17 last year, later abandoning the vehicle in Warrington - minus its load.

UK! Gang who stole £20,000-worth of Jammie Dodgers and Wagon Wheels are jailed.

What on earth is going on here!

This is why we need a UK specific forum.

I thought this was an April fool but it's dated the 4th so might be true?

Stealing £20,000 worth of anything is a perfectly rational crime, if there's a good prospect of selling it on.
Some sweet shops might not be too fussy about their suppliers. The code signal would be to go in and start whistling "Three wheels on my wagon".

Huh.
You'd think it was from one of our "smoker friendly" states.
Munchies are a bitch.

Well, this really does take the biscuit!!

£20,000 worth though, that's a fair few packets, particularly as Wagon Wheels have shrunk since I was a kid.

I'm not a bit surprised.
Jammy dodgers are like crack.
They can keep the wagon wheels though.

I have a friend who is notorious for his various wheeling and dealing.
He works on very small margins and like many other friends of mine many of his dealings are either borderline legitimate or simply outright 'dodgy' to say the least.

I'm sure many of us have similar friends / associates.


My friend phoned me up one day, as he often does, and asked me if I wanted some Curly Wurly's.
I said I'd have a box or two - he replied that he needed to get rid of slightly more than a 'box or two' as he had a full lock up of them.
He picked me up a couple of hours later and we drove a few miles to the place where he had a lock up - there was literally thousands upon thousands of boxes of Curly Wurly's.

He had another lock up near by which was full of only Men's slippers and Women's nighties - Primark style.

I never bought got any slippers or lingerie but my nephews and nieces were eating Curly Wurly's for what seemed like an eternity.

Some people buy the most ridiculous knock off gear.

There used to be some really good deals to be had, unfortunately like most things standards seem to be dropping and everything seems to be snide or cheap tat nowadays.

Time to move on to other investment opportunities.

Don't forget there was a genuine biscuit shortage last year too - those heartless swines.

I think the real crime here is referring to Wagon Wheels as biscuits.

I suggest we petition to have a study on the genome of the Wagon Wheel to determine it's true lineage, coz I'm not buying it.

A Wagon Wheel is about as much a biscuit as is a Pink & White, or a Snowball.

Wow, 2 years in the nick for Jammie Dodgers and Wagon Wheels?

Could have at least made it something decent like Garibaldi's or Custard Creams, hell, even Rich Tea or Digestives would have been umpteen times better than Wagon Wheels.

Hell im english and that way too english for me.

All it needed was some police in there old dome hats chasing them with truncheons.


A film should be made called the great biscuit heist.
