Three arrested in Kansas attempting steal a
semi-truck load of processed beef valued at $83,000.
The trailer was loaded at
the Tyson Processed Meat plant in Kansas, but the thieves
believed they were under surveillance by police and never
returned to pick it up. The indictment alleges that the
three conspired to use the identity of a legitimate trucking
company in Pennsylvania to bid on hauling the load of Kansas
beef to California through a freight broker based in Ohio.
Once the hauling contract was awarded, a man allegedly
fitting the description of one of the suspects but using a
counterfeit California commercial drivers license dropped
off a trailer at the Tyson plant in Holcomb to be loaded.
The indictment charges all three defendants with conspiracy
to commit wire fraud and to steal shipments of freight,
which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
Jewelry thieves make a daring daytime raid as shocked
customers looked on. Houston
police are on the hunt for three brazen suspects who smashed
windows at a posh jewelry store in Rice Village Wednesday
afternoon and took off with nearly $100,000 in jewels. The
suspects hit Rice Village Diamonds around lunchtime, even
though the area was buzzing with people. Witnesses said
three men hopped out of a red Honda Pilot and began banging
on the outside display window with hammers. It was thick,
reinforced glass, but they smashed through three panes. No
customers were in the store at the time, only Robichau and
two employees. (Source
