Thieves Nab Semi Trailer Full Of Pharmaceuticals – Ohio

FAYETTE COUNTY — A brazen daytime hijacking of a semi tractor trailer may have netted the thieves an undisclosed amount of pharmaceutical supplies.

Around 6 p.m. today the Fayette County Sheriffs Office was notified of the theft of a semi tractor trailer from the TA Truck Stop on S.R. 35 at I-71. Sheriff’s deputies were in the area within minutes and began searching for the rig.

Since the semi was hauling pharmaceutical supplies, surrounding law enforcement as well as the Ohio Department of Homeland Security were contacted and a multi state alert was issued.

Around 8 p.m. the State Highway Patrol received a call of a disabled semi on I-71 in Clinton County. When the patrol arrived, the semi tractor stolen was there, but the trailer wasn’t. Witnesses tell authorities that the trailer was driven off by another tractor shortly after the theft was reported.

The trailer is described as white, with green words Prime Transport Inc. on the side.

Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of the trailer are encouraged to contact the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office at 740-335-6170.  From NBC4i.com
