REWARD stops or unattended/unsecured lots, criminal gangs face minimal risk of having their identity exposed. One similarity between cargo theft and bank robbery is the low chance of being caught spending the money stolen or fencing the stolen product. Once stolen money leaves a bank, there is very little chance the thief will be caught spending it, even if the serial numbers are known to police and the bank’s officers. The same is true with stolen cargo. With so many warehouses and ocean containers/trailers coming and going, the likelihood that stolen cargo will be recovered is minimal.
Sentencing is largely based on their criminal history, as well as whether weapons were involved in the crime. Although law enforcement investigates all bank robberies intensely, perpetrators who made off with a few thousand dollars by passing a note to the teller will receive considerably lighter sentences upon conviction than those who brandished weapons inside the bank. In a similar vein, a convicted thief with no criminal history who stole a $12 million load without using a weapon will often receive no prison time, despite the value of the goods.
Cargo Theft Sentencing In 2007, Carlos Alarosa, a native of Cuba, stole approximately 2800 Tom Tom global positioning units and an 18 wheeler in Dallas. The total value of theft was $842,000. Apprehended with the stolen load by police in Mesquite, Texas, Alarosa was convicted and sentenced to 5 years’ deferred adjudication, meaning the offense won’t count on his criminal history if he completes probation successfully (Eiserer, 2008). Bank robbers and those who commit other high-visibility crimes do not draw tougher sentencing from the courts because their crime made the national news.
