Truckers Targeted For Cargo Thefts


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – An organized crime operation with ties across the country and overseas may have hit Middle Tennessee. 

Metro police are investigating a tractor trailer theft. Someone stole $1 million worth of computers from the vehicle. 

Investigators said similar heists are taking place across the country.

Federal investigators are working with Metro police to catch these truck bandits. 

“Supposedly within 15 minutes she came back out to the parking lot and her rig was gone,” said Metro Lt. Mickey Garner.  More from NewsChannel5
