Big Rig of Miller High Life Stolen: 44K Pounds of Beer Recovered Next Day

A big rig with 44,000 pounds of Miller High Life beer was stolen in Orlando on Monday but recovered the next day in Miami with most of its payload still intact.

Driver Van Thomas, who told WFTV that he recently purchased his own truck so he could drive independently, was making a delivery from Texas to Pompano Beach, Florida, when he pulled up at a truck stop in Orlando.

Next thing he knew, a group of thieves drove off with his semi.

"I don't mean to cry about it but I'm just trying to do the best I can and make a better life," Thomas told WFTV Monday, adding that the truck contained 9,700 four-packs of Miller High Life. "It's just so devastating to me."

Luckily, the truck was found the next day in Miami with a majority of the beer onboard. The suspects have not been caught, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

WFTV noted that the theft of semi trucks has become a regular thing for thieves in the state. The television station noted that robbers made off with 180,000 eggs in one such crime earlier this year, while a vehicle with Hershey chocolate in Volusia County was nabbed in December.

Another truck filled with Slimfast was taken from a location near downtown Orlando recently as well, according to WFTV. Detectives are trying to determine if the thefts are connected as part of a bigger ring.
