    A shipping container filled with hamburger patties was stolen from a storage lot in New Jersey Tuesday, and police are searching for the meat thieves. 

    The 40-feet refrigerated container, filled with 3,000 cartons of hamburger patties worth $100,000, had been sitting on a trailer inside the BMG Logistics lot at 720 W. Edgar Road in Linden, according to police.

    The container was set to go to the Netherlands, where the Hilton-brand hamburgers were to be distributed to Hilton Hotels overseas. 

    At about 10:30 p.m. Monday, someone broke into the lot and drove the trailer out of the yard, surveillance video shows. 

    The 2006 trailer had a California license plate, 4HR1817. 

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Linden Police.
