article imageCorn stolen from moving train

By Owen Weldon     Dec 11, 2011 in Crime
More than 50 tons of corn was stolen from a moving train in Brazil. Police are investigating the incident that occurred in Sao Paulo.
The theft occurred in southeastern Brazil, in Sao Paulo state. Police say that thieves managed to steal 55 tons of corn from the moving train.
According to MSNBC, thieves were able to cause the locomotive skid to slow down because they greased the train tracks. Once it slowed down, the thieves used a tow truck that was equipped with a hook to remove the containers that had corn in them.
According to the Sacramento bee, the police report says that the train was going through a rural area, located around 180 miles north of the capital. The train’s destination was the port of Santos.
According to the Washington Post, the train was not only loaded with corn, but also was traveling with sugar aboard it.
The case reminds many of the old Wild West robberies. That’s when bandits, on horses, approached moving trains and stole items from the train.
