A man who is charged with stealing over 41,000 pounds of ground hamburger meat, valued at over $95,000 last week is still on the run.
According to the Dothan Eagle, police received a call from Martin Farms in Geneva, AL, stating that a tractor trailer had been parked on their property for a long duration.
After investigation, police discovered that the truck was traveling from LA transporting 22 pallets of meat. When opened, the trailer was empty.
Darrell Russell is accused of “first-degree receiving stolen property” and has a warrant out for his arrest, the Dothan Eagle notes.
A portion of the meat, 14 pallets, has been discovered at a local grocery store who police believe had no involvement in the criminal act, raising the question, “How can you be sure that the freight you are receiving is not a product of stolen activity?” Easy, you choose a secure carrier with a good reputation behind them.
