(Minneapolis, MN) — Minnesota is one of six states hit by a multi-million dollar theft ring targeting frozen meat. An investigation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security revealed 45 instances in which thieves stole semi-trailer loads of meat from beef and pork packaging plants in Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Three suspects were arrested in Florida last week. Investigators say the arrests are part of a larger organized crime enterprise based in Miami.
