Authorities Recover 2 Stolen Trailers Filled with Meals for Hurricane Victims

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says trailers containing $450,000 worth of Meals Ready to Eat bound to help with hurricane relief efforts in Louisiana have been recovered. The agency says on Sunday, August 30, troopers found two stolen commercial box trailers loaded with MRE.

Troopers found a stolen trailer off of I-81 at a Pilot Travel Center in Jefferson County. They say it was owned by Conley Trucking Company, a business based out of South Carolina. Officials say they also found the driver, identified as Antonio Eaddy of North Carolina.

Investigators say the VIN plate had been removed from the trailer. They said a secondary VIN found confirmed the trailer was listed in the National Crime Information Center as stolen.

Further investigation showed the cargo belonged to FEMA. Troopers contacted the agency and were told the cargo contained 30,780 pre-packaged individual Meals Ready to Eat (MRE) bound for Louisiana. The load was valued at over $200,000.
