Shipping container stolen from Linthicum business

A large empty shipping container worth $5,700 was stolen from outside a Linthicum warehouse over the weekend.

Police said the container, used to ship goods for an international import-export company, was left outside a warehouse but inside a locked fence at the Harper Robinson Co., in the 800 block of Oregon Ave.

Company officials reported that the40-by-8-foot container was missing Monday morning, but the fence was locked.

A company official, who did not want to be identified, said the heavy box was on a chassis, so all the thief had to do was hook it to a car and drive away. But how the thief got inside the fence remains a mystery.

"We don't know how it happened," the official said. "People steal these containers all the time and use them for storage sheds. You see them all over the place."
