    You gotta wonder what the heck they thought they were going to do with it.

    It’s in a container heading south as we speak.

    • Reward says:

      I bet you are correct. There were a bunch of thefts years ago where a group of men were caught stealing tons of random products, loading them in a container and then shipping them south.

    It was as I read my previous post , I was reminded of a discovery a few years ago were a group of people got together and loaded a container full of stolen building materials , toilets , air conditioners etc. to be shipped undetected to a particular island to the south ….. I wonder if they’ve regrouped and maybe this huge piece of equipment has already swam across … Happy hunting !
