Stolen, Multi-Million Dollar Load Recovered


Nearly a quarter of a million Sprint users who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new LG G2 will have to wait no longer.

On October 25, a truck that was hauling 22,500 of LG’s newest G2 phone was stolen from a Gary, Indiana Petro truck stop on Grant Street.

The driver told police that he parked his truck at the Denney’s parking lot and walked across the street to Petro’s Iron Skillet restaurant. When he went back to his truck, it was gone.

Four days and 260 miles later, police found the load in Louisville, Tennessee.

According to NWI Times, the stolen truck was found after it had been crashed into a utility pole.

Police have arrested Juan Perez-Gonzales in connection with the theft and have charged him with leaving the scene of an accident, receiving stolen property worth more than $10,000 and unlawfully taking more than $1 million.
