In May 2018, the police in Alba Iulia opened a criminal case after the representatives of an Agras store in the city complained that a man stole more chocolate from them.
After four years of investigation, investigators asked to drop the case because the man in question could not be found. On January 17, 2023, the magistrates of the Alba Iulia court gave a decision following the request to confirm the abandonment of the criminal prosecution.
At one point, around 2019, the police also had a suspect, but apparently it was not the man in question. Although several tests were administered and the act was captured on video cameras, the police were unable to find out who the chocolate thief was.
According to the reasoning of the court, “following the viewing of the images captured by the surveillance cameras in the premises and from the entrance to the Agra’s store, located in Alba Iulia, it is observed that a male person entered the at 17:11 inside the store, steals several Milka products which he puts in his pants, in the front and leaves the store at 1713 without paying the value of the stolen products.
Shortly after, at 5:15 p.m., the same person returns to the store premises and, after moving again to the chocolate section, proceeding in the same manner, again steals several Milka products, which after putting them in his pants, at 5:16 p.m. he takes them out of the store without paying for them.
Evidence was administered in the case, but the perpetrator could not be identified. By the ordinance of 12.12.2022, it was ordered to abandon the criminal prosecution”, the court’s reasoning states.
On January 17, 2023, the magistrates accepted the request to drop the criminal investigation, and the file was closed.
