COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities in Putnam County are investigating after a local trucking company said $21,500 worth of Coors Light beer was missing.
A report by sheriff's Deputy Steven Elrod stated the load being shipped on a Transpro Express truck was supposed to have reached Montgomery, Ala., but did not arrive from Florida.
The trucking company is based in Silver Point, about 12 miles southwest of Cookeville.
Transpro officials called the sheriff's office after learning the cargo was not delivered.
Trucking company officials told the deputy that when the truck returned to its Silver Point terminal, it contained only a few packs of beer and some packing material.
No charges were immediately filed.
