There is a sweet reward for aiding the recovery of a truckload of candy and gum.
There was 36,416 pounds of confections in a McCain trailer that went missing from Crazy D's Truck Plaza at Indiana 1 and Interstate 70 on Aug. 22.
The refrigerated trailer was found empty at a truck stop near Ann Arbor, Mich., almost a month later. It apparently had been abandoned there several days before, Michigan police reported.
McCain wants the candy and gum back and is offering a reward.
The driver of the candy truck parked the trailer at Crazy D's on Aug. 20 and took the tractor home for a weekend of rest. When he came back, the trailer was missing.
Each item in the trailer amounts to a low priced item in the form of candy bars and bubble gum. However, the value of the missing load in that 53 foot trailer is set at $69,000. That’s 30 pallets of potential tooth decay.
The $10,000 reward for recovery is contingent on finding all of the candy and gum. The amount of the reward will be prorated if only part of the loot is recovered.
