High-tech cargo gone with truck in Cape Coral

A tractor-trailer hauling $488,000 in computer equipment was stolen in Cape Coral after the driver stopped to rest, police said.

Authorities are continuing their search for the cargo and the large rig that disappeared the night of Jan. 1. The investigation is hampered by the fact a police report wasn’t filed until Wednesday.

Arenado Elias, owner of trucking solutions in Miami, said one of his drivers called him at 1 a.m. Jan. 2 to tell him that his older model $10,000 truck, hauling the computer equipment from Texas to Miami, had been stolen in Cape Coral.

“I was shocked,” Elias said.

He said the driver, Amaury Chinea, had driven to McAllen, Texas, to drop off a load of horticultural plants and picked up the computer equipment.  More HERE

Here is what concerns me..  According to the article:

To complicate the investigation, a report of the theft wasn’t filed with police until six days after the incident because Chinea, who doesn’t speak or write English, had to come back to Miami where Arenado said he helped him fill out the paperwork.

How did Chinea obtain a CDL and a trucking job driving in the US when FMCSA regs CLEARLY state a driver must read and understand English?  He couldn’t even fill out the necessary paperwork to report the theft.  Another question is this – why did it take him six days to check on his loaded truck?  Many truckers have to part their rigs away from home for various reasons, but if you have a loaded trailer, especially if it is high dollar cargo, you would check on it periodically, would you not?

Florida Deputies Recover Truckload of Stolen Guns

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —

A truckload of guns reported stolen from Jacksonville was recovered Monday in St. Johns County.

The Gander Mountain tractor-trailer was found by St. Johns deputies off Interstate 95 at East Twin Court Way.

Investigators said a “large amount of firearms” were still in the truck, but they were waiting for company officials to inventory the contents before they would know if any were missing.

In addition to St. Johns deputies, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were all investigating the theft.  From Officer.com

Copper Theft Threatens U.S. Infrastructure

From FBI.gov:

Last April, when tornadoes were threatening Jackson, Mississippi, many residents were not alerted to the severe weather because five tornado warning sirens didn’t work. The reason: the sirens’ copper wiring had been stolen.

A month earlier in Polk County, Florida, nearly 4,000 residents were left without power after thieves stripped copper wire from a transformer at an electric company facility. Estimated losses: $500,000. Not to mention the homeowner hassles.

And late last year, vandals removed 300 feet of copper wire from a Federal Aviation Administration tower in Ohio, threatening to interrupt communications between in-flight aircraft and air traffic controllers.

Jax trucker who killed 7 kids tries to find peace

MALONE, Fla (AP) _ A few days after Jacksonville trucker Alvin Wilkerson went to prison in June, a guard asked if it was his first time there.

 

“No, sir, this is my last,” Wilkerson replied.

Wilkerson is doing seven years after pleading no contest in a horrific crash that killed seven children from one family on a remote Union County roadway. Prosecutors said he fell asleep at the wheel.

Housed at the Graceville Work Camp, a far-flung outpost on the Alabama line, he is the unlikeliest of inmates.

In an exclusive interview with the Times-Union, Wilkerson, 34, gave no hint of the bitterness or anger that characterizes so many Florida prisoners. His biggest concerns aren’t the years of incarceration that lay ahead but his wife and three kids, the families of the dead children and keeping positive.  More from NewsOK

It was a sad story — Wilkerson drove for Crete Carrier out of Lincoln, Nebraska.  According to the article, “Wilkerson was charged with seven counts of vehicular homicide and manslaughter, carrying a potential 85-year sentence under Florida sentencing guidelines. Though he hadn’t used drugs or alcohol, prosecutors said he was criminally responsible because he dozed off after not getting enough sleep.”

Poll: John McCain, Barack Obama locked in a statistical dead-heat in Florida

With only two weeks remaining in the race for the White House, John McCain and Barack Obama are locked in a statistical dead-heat in the key battleground state of Florida, according to the latest statewide poll conducted for the Orlando Sentinel.

In the intense race for the state’s 27 electoral votes, McCain holds a slight edge over Obama, 46 percent to 45 percent, in the survey released today by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc. With a margin of error of 4 percentage points, however, that means either man could win Florida if the election were held today.

Both campaigns are spending a lot of money and time in Florida — with Obama having just finished a two-day swing through the state and McCain planning an appearance here on Thursday.

In a Mason-Dixon poll earlier this month, Obama held a 48-46 percent lead — still within the poll’s margin of error.  From the Orlando Sentinel

Florida – School-bus crash kills teen girl

CITRA – One student died and eight people were injured Tuesday when a tractor-trailer rear-ended a school bus near Ocala, authorities said.

About 20 people were aboard the bus, and authorities think all the students have been accounted for, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Pat Riordan said. Both vehicles caught on fire after the accident, which occurred on U.S. Highway 301 near 155th Street in Marion County.

Frances Schee, 13, was killed.

Six students and both drivers were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, Marion County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Heather Danenhower said. The bus was transporting students from North Marion Middle School and North Marion High School.  More from the Orlando Sentinel

How many of these types of accidents must happen?  Stopping any vehicle on a highway is dangerous – and to have a school bus stop on a major highway is a disaster that has already happened.  If there must be a school bus stop on busy street or highway, bus stops – off the road – should be built to ensure the safety of the children and motorists.  That’s just common sense. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the trucker, the students and their families.
