  • Authorities say they used “standard cardboard boxes that were carefully routed through the private mail carrier’s trucking and delivery systems.”
  • At least 11 people have been arrested and four UPS employees have been charged following a decade-long investigation.
  • The alleged ringleader was based at a UPS facility in Tucson. A local cop said the investigation took so long in part because the company did not cooperate more “proactively.” (UPS says it is cooperating with law enforcement.)
