Wis. man steals truck with 900 swine flu vaccines, ruins the supply
We're still trying to figure out what this man thought he was going to do with 900 doses of swine flu vaccine. Not exactly a thrill drug these days, but you're sure going to piss off a lot of people patiently waiting for their turn to get vaccinated. Or maybe he just needed a lift.
A man in Milwaukee is accused of stealing an idling truck containing 900 swine flu vaccines.
The 38-year-old man already has a criminal record and there were two other men believed to be in the vehicle with him. They are accused of taking the truck as it idled outside a swine flu clinic.
Police found the truck less than an hour after it was stolen and the vaccine was intact. But since the doses are considered "compromised" when it was out of city possession, it must be destroyed.
