WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors have charged three people with a brazen freight trucking scheme that spanned the country.

An indictment unsealed Wednesday in federal court in Wichita alleges the three men tried in 2011 to steal a trailer load of packaged beef worth $82,700 from the Tyson plant at Holcomb. Prosecutors say they posed as a freight hauler and dropped off a refrigerated trailer so it could be loaded.

Oganes Nagapetian, Tigran Nagapetian and Larisa Nagapetian with conspiracy to violate U.S. laws. Other charges include wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, and possession and production of false documents.

They are also accused of stealing trailer loads of almonds worth $76,000, shoes worth $236,700, and electric heaters worth $65,000 from various locations.

Records do not indicate whether they have attorneys.
