Five BK employees in custody over $40M theft

Five employees of BK Group of Companies are in police custody this afternoon after stealing Mack Trucks spare parts from the company valued approximately $40 million, a release from the company said.

The employees are assisting police with their investigations.

The items stolen include but are not limited to a computer box, fuel pumps, hubs, brake liners, fuel injectors, axles, batteries, lights, wheel seals, steering ends, deferential seals, clutch plates, pressure plates, dump pump, break booster, wheel bearings, ratchet, and stabiliser bars.

The release said that the company recognized that many of its trucks’ spare parts and other equipment were being stolen over the past year but was only able to catch those stealing the Group’s property this week.

Collectively, the employees have worked with the BK Group for more than 20 years, the release said. Investigations are continuing. The men are expected to be charged and placed before the court.
