A modern day Ramen Hood, stealing from the rich to (kind of) feed the poor.

Can you imagine the conversation:

1: Hey, got your rig? I know where there is a trailer full of product.

2: What's the cut?

1: 60/40 for you?

2: I'm in.

1: But first, I need you to sign a medical waiver. That's a LOT of sodium buddy.

So we are to believe that the whole load was ramen.

Not buying it at all.

Sounds like the first excuse the driver thought of.

The trailer was parked for a week. Who loads a trailer full of noodles ... and leaves it for a week.

Nothing makes sense.

Let’s say it was Costco amounts. 24x, 3.0 oz = one Costco box. That is 7.99 per box. The amount stolen per box is 13,442-ish.

The question now is can a 53 foot semi trailer hold that much Top Ramen??

Drinking beer watching baseball... distracted to say the least!

Googles says 120 cases per pallet putting the price of a pallet at 1,080 USD. Which would be 13 pallets stolen!!

I’m calling BS on this story!! The math is off!

Perhaps the thief was just after the trailer. Took the random opportunity, ramen or not. Big trailer is mighty useful.

My thoughts,

Average pallet is 4 ft by 4 ft. most 53 ft trucks can put 2 pallets side by side. 53/4 * 2 would allow for 26 pallets on the floor.
Due to the relative weight of each pallet, it's possible (if they were crated) they could have been double or triple stacked.

I wonder if he was in cahoots with the folks behind the Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist?

Canucks take care of breakfast, Americans take care of lunch & dinner. Kind of a genius win/win there.

The trailer alone is worth a decent amount
of money.

I was far more surprised that this happened in Georgia, not Florida.

I have two teenage kids in Florida. They DO NOT drink the tap water. At all.

I really cannot stress that enough.

Ramen....almost sounds like something the Russians would be behind.

It むst

It must have been parked in Brentwood, Calif. Because the wholesale of ramen made in Japan and shipped to the States is very inexpensive, so someone is out to collect some insurance money on it.

Here's my take...

1. Assuming it was a dry van trailer (and not a refer trailer on a back haul), you can figure the trailer was worth about $25-30k alone. A refer trailer would be worth about $50-60k. So this would need to figure into the total value of the loss.

2. Trailer was likely parked because tractor broke down and was towed (although they often tow truck and trailer). That, or it was already stolen and dumped (not worth it). Either way, it's a dumb idea to leave a trailer. They get stolen all the time.

3. Most trailer thefts happen when thieves spot an unhooked trailer and just take it...then they take it somewhere and figure out what's inside. (not the other way around). This is why most companies have stiff penalties for unhooking from a trailer. There are folks who just drive around with a tractor just looking for trailers to steal. It's a lot more common than what many may think. A truck can back under a trailer and hook it up in a few seconds and be gone. No one is the wiser. They just see a truck pull up, hook up and drive off. It's easy to tell if a trailer is loaded, just look to see if it has wax seals on the doors. If it does, it's loaded. (unless it's a local delivery).

LOL...I'll bet some thieves were really pissed when they discovered they'd boosted a van load of ramen noodles!!! DOH!!!

Whenever I see an unhooked trailer the first thing which pops into my head is 'I wonder how long it will be there before someone steals it?' I'm actually surprised it sat there as long as it did. Most trailers I wouldn't give 24 hours to.
