A pot AND stolen sneaker ring was busted yesterday by UPS inspectors who noticed some strange activities amongst some employees. The Daily News reports that inspectors set up a sting when they noticed that "tracking numbers showed the wrong packages were routinely getting loaded onto certain Bronx trucks." Oops!
A loading dock supervisor and another employee were caught "loading 5 pounds of marijuana and stolen sneakers onto a truck," which would then be driven by a third employee to a Bronx location. The three men were all arrested.
Earlier this year, the police broke up a group of UPS drivers who would intercept Sidekick phones bought with stolen credit cards. And last week, the MTA Bridge and Tunnel police arrested a truck driver when they noticed his rig was overweight - with 210 pounds of pot amongst shredded coconut.
