Return of the Wild West: Thieves target moving train
Mon, 12 Dec 2011 13:50:12 GMT —
In a scene seemingly out of the old American Wild West, thieves in Brazil targeted a moving train and safely made away with the goods.
Their bounty: 55 U.S. tons of corn.
As police tell it, the thieves made the 54-wagon locomotive skid and slow down by greasing the train tracks. That's when they used a tow truck with a hook to remove the corn-filled containers, the report said.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.
