A British man who stole 200,000 Cadbury Creme Eggs has been convicted in court.
Joby Pool, 32, was surrounded by the chocolate eggs when he was arrested on the weekend, reports the BBC.

He used a stolen truck to steal a trailer containing the chocolate eggs from an industrial unit in Telford in western England, prosecutors told Kidderminster Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Pool, from Leeds, pleaded guilty to criminal damage and theft.

Prosecutors said the theft had taken “significant planning”.

Police said Pool had used a metal grinder to cut through the gates of the industrial unit from where he stole the eggs and other chocolate sweets.

The haul was worth £31,000 ($AU54,000).

Pool was arrested when police stopped a vehicle on the M42 motorway.

He is due to be sentenced next month.
