Here’s some news that I never thought I’d have to write…
$1.2 million worth of adult toys were stolen from a truck in the U.K in the early hours of the morning of September the 18th of this year.
The truck was heading to Rocks Off Ltd to deliver its X-rated load when it was broken into between the A14 highway and Broughton Village in Northamptonshire.
Detectives believe that the thieves broke into the trailer between 1 am – 6.30 am when they swiped $1.2 million worth of raunchy goods.
Northamptonshire Police have launched an appeal to track down the stolen goods, that belong to the U.K’s “leading sex toy manufacturer and designer.”
A Northamptonshire Police Facebook post about the theft has been widely shared, with one user suggesting the thieves were “already in handcuffs.”
Another added: “They’ll get a stiff sentence when they’re caught.”
Rocks Off Ltd boasts being the “number one European supplier for own brand and branded products.” It stocks sex toys, vibrators, love eggs/balls, and intimate massagers.
They add on their site: “Our worldwide number one best seller being the RO-80mm bullet – with over 6 million sold to date.”
“Our products are produced with body-safe materials, meet the highest level of conformity and unless otherwise stated, are tested 100% waterproof and are fully submersible.”
This news follows the viral story about the time that someone lost a full bag of adult toys in Somerset in the U.K last month.
For whatever reason – whether it was the weight of the contents, the flimsiness of the carrier, or weather conditions – the bag broke open, meaning the sex toys were strewn across the street.
Whoever was carrying the bag did what any sane person would do in that embarrassing situation – they ran.
Many people commented on the image, with some tagging their pals and others pointing out that there’s a “lot of money worth there.”
Not quite $1.2 million, though…
