This container is similar to the one stolen on Monday from Wolverine World Wide in Howard City.

The Howard City Police Department and U.S. Customs officials are investigating the theft of a semi trailer loaded with footwear from the Wolverine World Wide Distribution Center, located at 214 E. Washburn St. in Howard City. Police believe the theft occurred in the early morning hours of Monday, August 24.

A 40-foot long shipping container mounted to a flat bed semi trailer chassis (a type of shipping container that is used universally on cargo ships, trains, and semi trailers) was stolen from the loading dock area of the business. They have not determined how much cargo was in the container at the time of the theft.

The container is grey, with the company name and logo of “MAERSK” on it. It has an Oregon vehicle registration of HQ76192. The suspects brought their own semi truck to remove the trailer from the scene.

Police are requesting any potential witnesses, particularly from an adjacent residential neighborhood, to contact the Howard City Police Department 231-937-4311. They are particularly interested in any bright lights or unusual activity in the loading dock area.

If any trailer similar to the above description is observed unattended or seems suspicious, please contact your local law enforcement.
