Around $120,000 in chocolate is missing, the contents of a semi-truck that Volusia County deputies was stolen from a DeLand truck center over the weekend.
Investigators have been trying to track down the truck, its contents and a thief with an unusually strong sweet tooth.
The driver of the stolen truck, which was hauling $120,000 worth of Hershey's chocolate, called 911 early Sunday morning to report the truck stolen from the JD Lewis Truck Center, on International Speedway Boulevard near the DeLand airport.
911 Operator: When was the last time you saw it?
Driver, Kenneth Szorosy: Three o'clock yesterday [Saturday] was the last time I saw the truck. It's hooked to a trailer as well, fully loaded, with chocolate.
911 Operator: Fully loaded with chocolate, huh?
Szorosy: Yeah, someone with a sweet tooth.
911 Operator: Well, you know, maybe that's what they were going for. Who knows?
Whoever stole the truck has the challenge of trying to keep the contents cool -- or deal with a chocolaty mess.
Deputies said the truck, owned by SunState Carriers in Tavares, was a 2012 Freightliner Cascadia with red and orange stripes, valued at $90,000. A spokesman for SunState Carriers said he would not comment on the theft or provide a picture of the truck.
The JD Lewis Truck Center rents space to truckers for free. It also provides drivers with a remote control to open the gate.
A sign outside the business indicates surveillance cameras record 24/7, but the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said deputies are not releasing the video at this time, as their investigation is ongoing.
