    According to a report from the authorities, the van contained 1,163 televisions plasmas of different brands and sizes.

    It was registered with the No. SMLU851152-9 and was found empty in the morning yesterday, Thursday, two kilometers from San Pedro de Macorís, near the Autovía del Este, in the section San Pedro-La Romana.

    Another person, whom investigators believe could be involved in theft and armed assault on the port facility, is questioned by police and officials from various Customs agencies.

    The J-2, the National Investigations Department (DNI) and other agencies of the Ministry of Defense are collaborating in the investigations.

    Definitely an inside job. The only people knowing the contents are the ones with access to data base and paperwork, to include aduanas opening sealed container for "inspection".

    Yes, Dominican 'plasma' includes LCD. I tried correcting my girlfriend when she called the LCD plasma and she clarified that it's any flat screen. They will say 'plasma' with a great deal of pride, so never a television which is assumed to be the old school tube units and still in use here in my barrio.

    There's a guy around the corner who is a wizard with tube units and has quite a collection that spills out onto the street. I'm always amused when I walk by because there's no obvious need for security or protection from the rain.

    Maybe the owners of the container trying to avoid paying duty?

    More like high end government officials getting their new Navidad "plasma". Inside job? Never. Think of the bar scene in Goodfellas.
