A federal grand
jury in Charleston, WV, has charged three men with stealing a tractor-trailer
loaded with nearly $2 million worth of cigarettes, The Associated
Press reported Dec. 19.
The three Miami
residents - Lazaro Gomez, 30, Lazaro Rey, 34, and Juan Carlos Gomez,
33 - are accused of conspiring with two others to steal the truck,
take the cigarettes and sell them in Atlanta, the report said. The
truck was stolen from a rest area on the West Virginia Turnpike
about 25 miles south of Charleston. Police found the vehicle north
of that location.
