pharmaceuticals on Tuesday, December 26th.

and trailer containing the pharmaceuticals was stolen from the
Flying J truck stop on SR41 in Jeffersonville, OH, with the
original tractor being located approximately 11 miles away.
The trailer and cargo are still missing.

one driver arrived to pick up the cargo, which allowed for the
shipment to be left stationary and unattended in one of the
most notorious truck stops for cargo theft in the United States.

the trailer was solid white with no markings, making remarking
an easy task and the trailer difficult to track by description or
photo alone. The trailer and identifying markings are pictured
