Following four years of investigation, police in several countries have arrested 37 members of a criminal organization specializing in the theft of cargo from moving trucks.

For four years, this Romanian organization involving around a hundred members has been operating in five European countries. They are responsible for at least 150 thefts of goods and always proceeded in the same way: a first car positioned in front of the truck to slow it down, two others in the back blocked motorists and finally a fourth approached the trailer with a person on the hood which opened it with an angle grinder.

The goods were either picked up directly in the vehicles or thrown on the roadside to be picked up later.
