Attempted Pharma Theft
Location: Elkton, MD
Description: There was an attempted FTL cargo theft in Elkton, MD off I-95
The driver stopped at the TA truck stop just north of Elkton, MD and went inside the facility for approximately 30 minutes. When he came out, he found his truck broken into and the engine running. There was evidence of the ignition having been hotwired. Looking at the trailer, there was evidence on the ENFORCER® Trailer Padlock to suggest that someone had tried to enter the trailer. The driver however was utilizing the ENFORCER® Air Cuff® Lock, which was still activated when he got back to his rig. There was also an ENFORCER® ABLOY® Trailer Padlock on the trailer doors, which had prevented the perpetrator from actually entering the trailer.
Waconia, MN – October 19th 2004 – The ENFORCER® Air Cuff™ Lock saves a high value load from being stolen at a truck stop.
Last night an attempted truck theft involving a major truckload carrier, with a high value load was prevented in Sparks, NV. The truck’s dashboard was severely damaged, while the Air Cuff™ Lock prevented the truck from being stolen. The cargo was still secured because the driver placed the ENFORCER® ABLOY® padlock on his trailer doors and had his ENFORCER® Air Cuff™ Lock in place over the air valves on the dashboard.
The driver stayed in his cab to make sure no one came back or tried to steal any of his personal belongings and called road maintenance in morning.
