Entry Description

Tippecanoe County- Today at approximately 9:30 a.m, Troopers with the Indiana State Police Commercial Motor Vehicle Division (ISP CVED) stopped a refrigerated truck on I-65 southbound near the 171 mile marker for possible motor carrier violations.

Trooper Ashley Kelly of ISP CVED stopped a white 2008 UD refrigerated straight truck owned by Hispamex Products Inc. of Cicero, IL.  The driver, Saens Rodriguez 35 years old from Chicago, IL, was advised of the reason for the stop.  Upon further investigation, it was found that the refrigerated unit had been shut off to help the truck run better.  Trooper Kelly checked the temperatures of the load inside the unit and found them to be above the allowable temperatures required by law.

Representatives Craig Rich and Julie Dunbar of the Tippecanoe County Health Department were called to assist. They checked the temperatures of the products and found them to be above the temperature required by law.  Approximately 2,000 pounds of meat, kid’s drinks, cheese and yogurt were destroyed.  The load was headed to Crawfordsville and Indianapolis stores and restaurants.  The driver was cited for motor carrier violations and released.

Assisting at the scene were Sergeant Rich Kelly of ISP CVED, Tippecanoe County Health Department, Indiana Department of Transportation and Republic Disposal of Lafayette, IN.

Media note: Any questions about the traffic stop should be directed to Sergeant Kim Riley.  Any questions about the health issues should be directed to the Tippecanoe County Health Department.

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