Beef Prices Motivate Theft

07/05/2022

With the value of a trailer load of beef approaching $200,000 depending on product, hijacking of loads have occurred in Nebraska.  Authorities are investigating three heists with two tractor- trailers recovered and a third still unaccounted for.

 

Although the value of beef in a semi-trailer may exceed $200,000, distribution of the purloined contents in 20-ton loads presumes the involvement of organized crime on a regional or even national scale.  Counter-measures including apprehension of those responsible at all levels will require the involvement and resources of the federal government.  Theft and illegal distribution of raw meat also represents a potential food safety hazard.
