How do you steal an entire container, and how do you fence the goods?
Seems a little hairbrained to me......

Some mobsters will be smoking good for a few years.

Wanna nab these crooks? Look for some guy trying to score a few hundred board feet of Spanish cedar and half-a-ton of beads to make that container into one hellacious humidor.

Inside job and turn it around with new numbers or transfer the goods and ship them to Asia, Russia or the Ukraine (or other former USSR countries w/ seaports). A nice bribe and they clear import.

Yah that's not someone with a crowbar backing up a white panel truck, I would bet they are already on a ship going some place else, I would assume that those containers have some kind of gps tracking / lo-jack like devices... of course that would make too much sense so never mind.

Quick let's create a company that installs them and tracks containers! Someone get Klugs on the phone! :lr

Pretty tough to sell those so my guess they just nabbed a container to see what was it it. Probably end up leaving them to be recovered.

I used to work for a company that basically pioneered the container asset tracking technology. It was too far ahead of it's time (pronounced: "expensive") almost no one bought it.

I know there are more advanced systems out there now that cost less, but I really have no idea how widespread they are. I'm sure some companies use them. If I were someone like Dell, I'd slap tags on that container like clearance stickers at a K-mart. But Fuente? Betcha a Padron 64** that they are looking into it now.

just a guess but although the manifest probably said the container was loaded on the ship in the DR, it never made that ship and it took a different route off the island.

That's impossible because I'm the first to think of it. This is some kind of ruse.

My local B&M had a large order of to include some Opus X on that shipment among others...the owner got a personal call from them explaining the loss. And his money refunded..
