The unlucky truck driver had stopped for a brief nap at a service stop on the A1 highway in Italy, near Rome when he was attacked, suffering light injuries. Another truck driver, however, witnessed the heist and called the police which managed to apprehend the sweet-toothed thieves and recover the Nutella. This is not the first time Nutella becomes a target for thieves.
A similar attempt in Germany some months earlier was successful and the thieves got away with 5 tonnes worth of Nutella. The value of that heist was placed at €15,000 so this one would have been the greatest Nutella heist on record.
