Truck thief’s big catch - 21 tons of beef liver

SHARE Truck thief’s big catch - 21 tons of beef liver

Need proof that crime doesn't pay? Ask the thief who stole a tractor-trailer rig from a truck stop, only to discover the cargo was nearly 21 tons of beef livers.

"I'll guarantee they didn't know what was in it or they wouldn't have taken it," Lt. Bill Meeks of the Independence County sheriff's office said Tuesday. "Frozen beef liver, what are you going to do with that? Go fishing for catfish?"Whoever swiped a tractor-trailer rig from a truck stop in West Plains, Mo., apparently sampled the cargo and left the rest.
