Somebody must really like Coca-Cola, because over the weekend they stole a tractor trailer of containing hundreds of cases of 20 ounce Cokes.
ORLANDO, FL (Catholic Online) - The theft occurred just before midnight on Saturday.
Police say that tractor-trailers have been targeted by thieves in the past couple months with at least two thefts occurring since then involving more than $100,000 worth of merchandise each time.
Other drivers have reported tampering with seals and locks on their trailers.
In one case, a trailer was stolen carrying $250,000 in appliances. Police recovered the trailer three days later, but it was empty.
No arrests have been made in any of the cases and it is unclear if they are linked.
