WILMINGTON (CBS) — Thieves reportedly drove their own big rigs to a trailer depot near the Port of Los Angeles and stole several loaded trailers.
The suspects struck the location at Farragut Avenue and Anaheim Street in Wilmington at about 1:15 a.m., Sgt. Brian O’Connor said. Police said multiple suspects took an unknown number of containers with unknown cargo.
A videographer who spoke with police at the scene said two armed men wearing masks beat up a male and female guard and fled with two loaded trailers.
The heist remained under investigation.
