NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Joe Mozingo, reporter for The Miami Herald, about the theft of millions of gallons of aircraft fuel from the Miami-Dade International Airport. The thieves allegedly sold the fuel for yacht and truck use. A convicted felon has been managing the fuel depot where the thefts occurred — now he and 10 other suspects have been arrested for the thefts, which may amount to more than $5 million in value.
