Mark , I believe you may be correct, I have worked in the trucking industry since 1995 and still do for a major shipper as a mechanic . When I worked for roadway express in the late 90's they had a case of theft One time I remember and it was considered crossing interstate commerce lines and to the best of my knowledge the Feds did get involved. I normally don't chime in on these topics but this guy is a dirty dog and I hope they get him!! Really a shame . But I think you are on to something there.
I like SINCLAIR and old American made stuff ... No china items.
