Wanna Buy a Rolex?
Anything from swinging meat to toilet paper is a target

Rolex watches, cell phones and even swinging meat are prime targets for cargo thieves, experts say. Thieves are generally interested in high-value items like consumer electronics, cigarettes, seafood and designer clothes. But they will steal anything. “We’re concerned with every load we haul,” says Schneider’s Joe Kizaur. “A guy that gets a load of toilet paper can dispose of it more quickly than he can a load of televisions.”
