44,000 pounds of beer.

That's what truck driver Van Thomas was transporting from Texas to Florida.  (Hang on, why do I have this sudden urge to get on a CB and call myself Bandit)

And that's what was stolen while Thomas was resting up at a Florida truck stop.  Cab, trailer, and all that beer...gone. The equivalent of over 1600 cases of beer...gone.

The interview with Van Thomas tugged at my heart when he got emotional about losing the truck and possibly the business he had just launched.  However, according to WFTV, police were able to locate the vehicle in Miami with most of its cargo still in tact and accounted for.
