Moscow, Jan 31 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A truck loaded with 19 tonnes of latex gloves meant for Russia’s federal security service has been stolen.

The truck went missing from a street in St. Petersburg’s Nevsky area during the weekend, the Konkretno.ru news website reported.

The vehicle belonged to an unidentified transport firm, but the gloves were property of a concrete maker owned by the security service — or the Federal’naya Sluzhba Bezopasnosti.

The truck had an alarm system, but was parked in a spot not covered by street surveillance cameras.

The vehicle was also not insured against theft, and it remained unclear what the gloves were intended for.
