A CargoNet forwarded an email from a CargoNet transportation member to the command center. The email stated that the CargoNet member’s trailer was dropped at a gas station in Graham, NC on Wednesday (5/8/2013) and reported stolen on Sunday (5/12/2013). The member had called the gas station manager where the trailer was left and she said there was a great deal of police activity that Friday (5/10/2013) at 6PM but didn’t know why. She had surveillance but the police would not be picking it up until Wednesday. Additionally the trailer was not listed in NCIC. CargoNet called the police department, where a detective told CargoNet there were 3 other trailers parked near the CargoNet member’s trailer and a search warrant had been executed on a nearby trailer. The detective mentioned that the assistant manager on duty said she would be having the trailers towed from the yard because she did not want that kind of attention.  CargoNet then called the gas station manager and she told him that her assistant manager swore the CargoNet member’s trailer had already left and was not towed, but she provided CargoNet with the towing company’s information. CargoNet called the towing company and they confirmed that the trailer was indeed towed by them and secured in their lot.

Summary: On 11/21/14 a truck, trailer, and cargo of tires were stolen from a parking lot in New Albany, IN. The theft went unreported to the broker and insurance company until 12/1/14. Both parties were able to quickly provide a great level of detail regarding the theft – including pictures of the actual stolen truck and trailer – to CargoNet that day. CargoNet’s Command Center quickly released a BOLO on the equipment and several hours later, Louisville Metro PD called CargoNet to inform them the equipment and nearly all of the cargo was recovered with the help of FBI – New Albany, Kentucky State Police, and NICB. This textbook recovery speaks to CargoNet’s philosophy – actionable intelligence in the hands of the right people will prevent and help recover stolen cargo.

However upon further review it was identified that the phone number provided by Frank matched the Intelligence Alert that had been distributed to members earlier that day. Subsequently, Frank’s application was declined and another theft was avoided!
