LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky State Police have arrested a man accused of stealing more than $12 million of cell phone cargo manufactured by LG Electronics.
The alleged theft took place in Gary, Indiana. Police say 40-year old Juan Perez-Gonzalez was pulling a tractor trailer carrying the stolen goods.
"Apparently he had over 12 million dollars of LG Smart phones. So a lot of valuable cargo," says Sergeant Rick Saint-Blancard, with Kentucky State Police.
Sgt. Saint-Blancard says they were contacted about the case by the FBI last week.
He says, "The FBI monitors these activities. They had information regarding a large scale cargo theft that had taken place in Gary, Indiana."
Police believe the trailer was stolen from Gary, but they caught up with Perez-Gonzalez in Metro Louisville after they say he crashed into a utility pole near the corner of Knopp Avenue and Grade Lane. Perez-Gonzalez was arrested near the scene and police say there could be more stolen merchandise.
"Not sure how many are involved, this could open up into obviously a number of people that are involved -- in this in this whole, we're not sure how organized this is as of yet."
And that's why so many police agencies have been working the case, according to Saint- Blancard.
"Louisville Metro along with the agents from the FBI and the National Insurance Crime Bureau obviously worked together to this point and then going forward we will be conducting the investigation," Saint-Blancard said.
Gonzalez is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, receipt of stolen property and theft by unlawful taking. He has already bonded out of jail.
