Authorities Arrest Gang Believed to be Responsible for Theft of Meat


During recent months, CHICK-NEWS has reported on the theft of trailers containing beef and pork from a number of plants in the Midwest including a major heist at a Grand Island, NE. plant.


Following an extended investigation, the Florida Highway Patrol arrested three suspects in the Miami area acting on information supplied by the Sheriff in Lancaster County, NE.  The raid led to the recovery of three tractor trailers with stolen merchandise.  Total losses to date amount to $9 million. 


The extent of the robberies and the volume of product stolen suggested an organized crime ring.  It is hoped that the arrest will bring to an end the episode of thefts involving packing plants in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas.
