The Great Body Wash Heist | Such a Soap Opera!

The Great Body Wash Heist | Such a Soap Opera!

The Departure 

It was a typical day at Mirai Clinical, bustling with activity as we completed a massive production run. On May 1, 2024, twelve pallets, loaded with over 16,000 units of our latest body wash, were securely sealed and loaded into a seemingly reliable truck. Our precious cargo was bound for our fulfillment center in Reno, NV, and we watched with satisfaction as the truck departed, eager to see our products in the hands of our loyal customers.

The Silence

At first, the absence of updates on the truck's location didn’t raise any alarms. It was common for trucks to arrive unannounced at the Reno center. However, as the days passed from May 2 to May 5, 2024, with no sign of the truck or check-in from the driver, a sense of unease began to creep in. Something didn’t feel right.

Rising Concerns

Our concern turned into worry. From May 6 to May 8, 2024, repeated calls to the trucking company resulted in more confusion than clarity. Each call ended with vague assurances or, worse, an answering machine. The tracking system, usually reliable, showed no updates since the truck's departure. It was as if the truck had vanished into thin air.

A Disturbing Discovery

On May 9, 2024, frustration turned to alarm. Fearing theft or an accident, we reported the missing truck to the local police. The officer's next words chilled us to the bone: "The truck’s license plate number seen on security cameras was reported stolen eight years ago." This revelation hinted at a premeditated crime, possibly an insider job or a hijack by organized criminals using falsified credentials. Our precious cargo had likely been stolen.

Rising from the Ashes (One Month Later)

Despite extensive investigations, the mystery of the missing truck and the 16,000+ bottles of body wash remains unsolved. The financial impact on our small business is significant, casting a shadow over us. However, our spirit remains unbroken. We are incredibly grateful for the unwavering support from our wonderful Mirai community during these trying times. As a token of our appreciation, we are pleased to offer a complimentary travel-sized body wash with every backorder. This gesture is our way of saying thank you and ensuring that our customers continue to enjoy our products, even amidst adversity.
