ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) -- Maybe the thief turned green after discovering the haul.

 

The person or people who broke into a tractor-trailer rig at a South Carolina truck stop certainly had all the necessary supplies.

 

The Herald of Rock Hill reported someone took 56,000 green highlighters from a tractor-trailer rig at a Rock Hill truck stop Tuesday morning.

 

Rock Hill police say someone took two pallets full of boxes of BIC green highlighters worth $28,000 from the trailer. The thief also got several boxes of pens.

 

The driver, Barry Cousar, told officers he had parked his rig at the truck stop Friday.

 

Cousar says there are no markings on the truck he drives for TXN Logistics of Mount Pleasant to indicate what might be inside.

 

He says the highlighters were being taken to Charleston to be shipped to Brazil.
