Thieves have been raiding cargo containers aboard trains nearing downtown Los Angeles in the US for months. Dozens of freight cars are broken into every day, leaving gutted boxes that will never reach their destinations. According to tags found, the packages are from companies such as Amazon, Target, UPS and FedEx. Thieves wait until the long freight trains are immobilized on the tracks, and then climb onto the containers. They ditch products that are difficult to move or re-sell, or are too cheap such as Covid-19 kits. Rail operator Union Pacific has seen a 160 % rise in the thefts in Los Angeles county since Dec 2020. Watch the full video for more.
