Kiri Walton of Patch.com reports that “A Mableton man has been sentenced to federal prison for his part in two dozen cargo thefts, including an $86,000 Starkist canned tuna theft.”
The Georgia man was sentenced to 28 months in federal prison. The bigger crime? Not targeting a top brand of tuna!But no, we don’t want any thefts or charges of F/V St Jude tuna. Crime doesn’t pay.
“The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is asking members of the public who have seen suspicious off-loading of semi-trailer trucks at rest stops, truck stops, industrial areas or residential areas, particularly at night or on weekends to call the GBI’s Major Theft Unit.”
