Charlotte Trucker Exposes Alleged Truck Theft Ring Is In Charlotte
I’ve posted content on Tik Tok that has become viral and has opened me up to other content creators. A Charlotte trucker I follow exposes an alleged local theft ring in a wild story.
Clarissa Rankin is a popular trucker on social media. She recently posted a video about her truck being stolen. With the alleged theft ring she is exposing, she was able to find her truck at a location on Statesville road. Regardless if you are aware or not, a trucking career can be a dangerous one. In the video below, she exposes an alleged ring that have used some really wild ways to illegally take vehicles. Watch the video below to get the details on this wild case.
In the video she describes her semi truck being stolen in what is described as an illegal tow. A company allegedly used incorrect placement of a sign to take a semi truck. In a previous video, the alleged tow company came and placed a sign across the street and started towing vehicles. The tracking devices in the truck was allegedly disabled. That is a dead giveaway in my book that is suspicious. I hope they are able to prove that the sign was placed in the middle of the night allegedly. This is a wild situation and I am sure it has happened in many different places. The wild part of this entire situation is, after allegedly placing the sign, the company charged over $6,000 to gain possession of the truck. I have attached both videos to review.

The History Of Trucking In America
If you’ve walked into a store in the last couple of years and found empty shelves, you’ve experienced the perfect storm of a supply chain crisis and years-long shortage of American truck drivers.
The American Trucking Association (ATA) estimates roughly 72% of American freight is transported by trucks, and further posits that the U.S. is short more than 80,000 truck drivers. Experts have gone on the record to dispute such high estimates, but there’s generally agreement on how dependent American consumers are on the trucking industry for the delivery of goods.
To learn more about the industry, Stacker put together a timeline of the history of trucking in America. It’s a long and winding road complete with stunning innovations, larger-than-life personalities, bloody conflicts, shipments delivered, and deadlines met.
The supply chain disruptions we’ve been hearing about since early in the pandemic continue into 2022 as the Canadian government is scheduled to enforce a vaccine mandate beginning Jan. 15 for truck drivers crossing the border. This would apply to all federally regulated trucking operations. Meanwhile, the Biden administration has required truck drivers working for companies with 100 or more employees to be vaccinated or partake in weekly testing. The Supreme Court on Jan. 7 listened to arguments related to overturning two Biden Administration policies meant to raise coronavirus vaccination rates.
The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) estimates that anywhere from 12,000 to 16,000 border-crossing truck drivers could be lost if the border-crossing vaccine requirement goes into effect. More than two-thirds of goods traded between Canada and the U.S. are transported via roads and highways. The ATA is one of several groups seeking to appeal Biden’s mandate. The ATA argues that though they encourage vaccination for members in the trucking industry, there’s concerns regarding the impact of the federal mandate such as intensifying driver turnover and further creating supply chain disruption.
