I bet that driver was pissed---they waited until almost 5 p.m. to order him to leave. Just when he is beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Why couldn't they do it a half hour after he had left the building in the morning?

I read the article the other day and it says "its unclear how many packages they got away with". Im gonna guess zero unless the bulkhead was already open, but if the truck was already started Im assuming the door was closed. Unless the driver opened it for them w the fob because chances are they dont know how to open the bulkhead from the dash lol. Just banging on the door trying to get it to open and bailed more than likely
