A 68 year old man has been arrested after CCTV footage caught hiding KitKat wrappers on himself. What was in these KitKat wrappers you ask? Money, they were all full of money that was stolen from Vaultex Limited, where he was employed at.
This all happened between the months of February and May of last year. Peter Mills stole close to $30,000 from the place he was working at in Tonbridge, Kent. It got as bad as stealing from his work up to three times every single day.
His gig was up and he was busted when the staff searched him, they found five KitKat wrappers with about $75 in each of them. Then, the police were called. They found more money stashed in his car, and they also found a pile of empty wrappers in his locker that was used at work.
Mills was interviewed by police, he of course, denied taking any money at all. He could not however, give explanation on how he originally gained possession of the money. He failed to have a reason as to why large payments in cash were made to a construction worker that repaired his house.
Yesterday, Mills appeared in front of the court at Maidstone Crown Court. Mills pleaded guilty for four thefts, about $30,000 in total and he was sentenced to 21 months in prison.
“Mills thought by concealing all the cash with empty KitKat wrappers, that if he was caught he could claim it was all just an innocent mistake,”
said Detective Constable Ally Morgan. This is such a bizarre way to steal money. Who would think to hide it inside of KitKat wrappers. I think somebody may have been suspicious when they seen how many KitKats were lying around. I don’t think Mills will be stealing money anytime soon and I definitely don’t think he’ll be eating a KitKat ever again also.
