PHILADELPHIA - Crab legs, frozen meat, and now talcum powder. It appears tractor trailers have become the target of an unusual crime spree in Philadelphia.
The latest heist took place on the 1700 block of Swanson Street around 12:39 a.m. Monday.
Police say six masked suspects were seen stealing talcum powder from a semi-trailer truck, putting it into their vehicles.
