Entry Description

Tippecanoe County- Today at approximately 9:30 a.m, Troopers with the Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division (ISP CVED) stopped two trucks on I-65 for having improper temperatures in their refrigerated units.

Troopers Ashley Kelly and Nate King of ISP CVED stopped the vehicles southbound on I-65 near the 182 and 184 mile markers.  Trooper Kelly stopped a blue 1999 conventional Freightliner pulling a 1998 Great Dane refrigerated trailer owned by Dearborn Wholesale Grocers LP out of Chicago, IL for a routine truck inspection.  The driver, George A. Ross 36 years old from Griffith, IN, was advised of the reason for the stop.  Trooper Kelly noticed the refrigerated unit was not working properly and after checking inside the trailer found the temperatures were above what is required by law.

Trooper King stopped a white 2002 International straight truck with a boxed refrigerated unit owned by Covemex Corporation out of Chicago, IL for a routine inspection.  The driver, David Hernandez 27 years old from Chicago, IL, was advised why he was stopped.   Trooper King noticed the refrigerated unit was not on at the time of the stop.  Upon checking the load inside the unit, its load was found to be above the temperature required by law.

Bothe vehicles were taken to a large parking lot and the Tippecanoe County Health Department was called to assist.  Upon further investigation by the Health Department, approximately 500 pounds of dairy products and meats were destroyed from each truck.  The Freightliner was put out of service for brake violations and the International was cited for overweight violations per federal motor carrier laws.  Both trucks were released after repairing and adjusting their loads.

The Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division is committed to insure that the trucking industry abides by federal and state laws governing their industry.  Most trucking companies that run the roads of Indiana abide by the rules with just a few exceptions.

All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
