Daily News investigates the trade in stolen cargo in the New York region, and discovers a bigger scoop - that several FBI informants had made themselves rich by stealing cargo for years. The story's main character, Jose Maldonaldo, a cargo thief with a long rap sheet, has stolen more than $20 million in goods while working as an informant for the FBI's New Jersey office. Informants sometimes stole for themselves, and sometimes for the FBI, the investigation reveals. A few business owners talked on the record about "having paid out money to the FBI to broker deals to return their goods."
