RIDGE MANOR, Fla., July 31 (UPI) -- Thieves in Florida stole two semi-trailer trucks carrying $150,000 worth of frozen turkey and nacho cheese only to abandon the food in Texas, police say.

The two trucks where stolen from gas stations July 24-25 in Ridge Manor, Fla., the St. Petersburg Times reported.

Pasco County police found the rigs at a Flying J Travel Plaza in San Antonio, Texas, stripped of electronics, including a television, laptop and satellite radio. The turkey and the nacho cheese were left untouched.

Authorities say the thieves broke into the trucks by breaking out a small glass window at the bottom of the passenger door, then dislodged the ignition from the steering column.

Suspects had yet to be identified.
