Trucker Makes Off with 40,000 Pounds of Beef

by

LOGANTON, Pa. (AP) – Where’s the beef? That’s what authorities would like to know after someone stole 40,000 pounds of it from a meat plant in central Pennsylvania.

State police say it happened Nov. 21 at Nicholas Meat near Loganton.

According to troopers, a trucker loaded $110,000 in meat into a trailer during a scheduled pickup and drove off. He was supposed to deliver it by Monday to a company in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – but never showed up.

A spokesman for Nicholas Meat says the customer notified him Tuesday about the missing product, which would have been enough to make 160,000 burgers.

Police later discovered the driver used a fake ID to get the delivery contract. Authorities say the company information on the truck was also fraudulent.
