According to abc2news.com, a pharmaceutical truck transporting narcotics to a nearby pharmacy in West Baltimore was robbed yesterday in what is being called an “incredibly thought out robbery.”
The driver was transporting 87 crates full of narcotics (worth a very significant value) when three suspects, one in possession of a gun, surrounded and abducted the driver, stealing the truck, the article notes.
Thieves drove the truck to a precise location where they unloaded the cargo into another truck and took off, leaving the empty pharmaceutical truck and driver, who was unhurt, behind (http://www.abc2news.com/dpp/news/state/city-robbers-steal-truck-full-of-narcotics-during-pharmacy-delivery).
Abc2news informs that descriptions of the suspects have not yet been released but that this is thought to be a planned robbery since the thieves knew exactly what kind of freight the truck would be transporting and at what time.
