Thieves netted nearly $130,000 worth of bait fish when they stole a refrigerated container from a trucking company in north Jersey. The more than 63,000 pounds of menhaden were bound for China.

Police are reviewing video from surveillance cameras.

XTL Transportation owner Chris Milanes says he believes it was an inside job because the lot is not visible from the street.

Milanes says the fish were insured.
