The Miami-Dade Police Department’s (MDPD), Organized Crimes Bureau, Cargo Theft Task Force, arrested 6 indiviuals that accounted for over 1 million dollars in stolen dairy products from Island Dairy LLC and Mcarthur Next LLC
According to investigators, the six subjects were working in concert to pilfer dairy products from the distributor. The subjects would manipulate the ordering system causing extra dairy products to be loaded onto the distribution company’s delivery trucks. Once out for delivery, the drivers would deviate from their preassigned respective routes, meet with another individual, and transfer the extra dairy products to his delivery truck. The distribution company conducted an internal investigation that uncovered the irregularities, and identified the potential suspects. The company’s investigation team contacted MDPD and reported its findings. The MDPD detectives worked swiftly and conducted surveillance on the suspects. Within hours of the initial report, MDPD captured the transfer of stolen dairy products on video. Once detectives determined that they were in fact selling stolen goods all six individuals were placed into custody with the help of Florida Highway Patrol.
