Moscow Truck Heist

MOSCOW () -- Armed robb


ers stopped three trucks on a highway west of Moscow and made off with their entire cargo of $400,000 worth of video equipment, police said Monday.


The Ukrainian drivers said they were taken away in a minibus and held for 24 hours before being brought to Moscow and given back their then empty trucks, police spokesman Gennady Melnik told Itar-Tass.


The trucks were commandeered Thursday evening, but the drivers did not notify police until Sunday out of fear for their safety, Melnik said.


The six robbers have not been identified.
