WAXAHACHIE - A tractor-trailer full of cigarettes was stolen from a Waxahachie terminal early Monday, Oct. 22 and recovered about two hours later, a company spokesman said.

The truck belonging to Celadon Trucking Services was stolen from the 7200 block of Interstate 35E about 2 a.m., said Craig Koven, spokesman for the Indianapolis-based company.

He said two people hotwired a truck and threatened a security guard with a gun before fleeing.

The trailer, tractor and cigarettes were worth about $2 million, Waxahachie police said.

'Officials were able to track the truck because it was equipped with a monitoring device,' Koven said.

It was recovered by authorities about 3:45 a.m. about 30 miles from the Waxahachie terminal with the cigarettes.

No arrests had been made, police said, but they believe as many as four people may have been involved.
