Plasics News reported last week that the Mexican government is going to be cracking down on the stealing of resin trucks. "There’s been a resins black market in Mexico for many years...Gangs attack the trucks and steal the resins. It happens every month...It may be as much as 1,000 metric tons a year."
Who knew? But resins? Most are only worth a dollar or two and you would certainly get less on the black market. Why not steal something of greater dollar density ($/cm3) like pharmaceuticals?
