Nope, probably made bail, which was peanuts (...pardon the wisecrack), and let back out so they steal another load to pay their bail.
Please call your MP and your MPP and tell them that this is indicative of organized crime and we absolutely need a lot more resources to get to the bottom of who are involved and who is profiting from these stolen loads. If there is no pressure on these people who buy truckloads of product that somehow make it to the marketplace the problem will continue and grow.
