Police are looking for thieves who reportedly waited for a driver to fall asleep in the cab of his truck to nab some pretty unusual loot —

The suspects ripped open a huge hole in the side of the truck while the driver was getting some shut eye up front, stole 6,400 cans, and went on their merry way with the magical fruit. (Via Daily Mirror)
But apparently, the bean bandits had all the time in the world to smuggle thousands of cans away from the scene.
According to The Guardian, the burglars snatched an entire pallet and part of a second pallet sometime between 8:45 p.m. Monday and 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.
But in all seriousness, police are for information about “anyone trying to sell large quantities of Heinz baked beans in suspicious circumstances” to call them immediately. Seriously. (Via Daily Star)
Oh, and just in case you were looking for another identifier to help track down the thieves — this particular type of baked beans had sausage in it too.
