A hijacked truck carrying $5,644,510 in pharmaceuticals passed through Trigg County last week. Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement Officer Paul Doublin said that the hijackers stopped in front of Crop Production Services to replace the stolen cab with a second rig before apparently leaving the area.

Doublin told The Cadiz Record that the drugs were owned by Glaxo Smith Kline and included prescription-grade drugs and narcotics.

The cab, a 2002 White Freightliner, is owned by Swift Transportation of Phoenix, Ariz., was recovered in front of the local business. The trailer, marked with Swift’s blue and yellow logo, remains at large.

The trailer, stolen on November 9 in Waverly, Tenn., was observed by an employee of CPS on the same day. Doublin said that the employee suspected that the driver intended to park the vehicle in front of CPS and notified her employers.

When she returned to ask the driver to park elsewhere, the trailer was gone, and the Freightliner remained parked at the scene.
