You'd think the Welsh police would have been more experienced in catching thieves and recovering stolen goods.

Maybe not, they can't have been very good biscuits, unless the article quoted the wholesale value - a trailer full of McVitie's biscuits had a retail value of approximately £24,000 more than 20 years ago.

I heard the 'Ring' leader was Boris von 'Viscount' who used 'Wagon Wheels' to make their getaway. Detective McVitie is on the case. He just needs to 'Digestive' the facts first.
