On Wednesday, a New Jersey truck driver was sentenced to six years in prison for his role in a 3-country cargo theft ring, the Cliffview Pilot reported.
In a Bergen County Superior Court, Mohammad Nazzal, 38, pleaded guilty to his role in a theft ring. The thieves stole $500,000 worth of carpet from a Little Ferry Company and a quarter of a million dollars in designer clothing.
