GRAND ISLAND, Nebraska – Following the theft over the weekend of trailers holding hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of meat, the Grand Island Police Department is conducting an investigation.
According to Captain Jim Duering, all of the occurrences are taking place in the Cold Storage Facility close to McCain Foods, which is located in the 200 block of Roberts Street.
According to Duering, the first two occurrences were reported early on Friday evening after a truck driver observed that two semi-trailers and their respective goods had been taken.
The second theft was reported on Sunday, but Duering indicated that they believe the it also occurred on Friday.
The Gibbon Packing Company’s meat was in each of the three trailers that were being transported. It is estimated that the combined worth of all three trailers comes to little more than $750,000.
According to Duering, neither the meat nor the trailers have been found at this time.
He stated that at this moment there are no people of interest; however, the department does have some video surveillance footage that they are now reviewing.
The police are also looking into whether or not these crimes have any connection to the trailers that were taken in June of this year.
