    Eusebio Diaz Acosta, 51, who was arrested early Sunday after he allegedly stole a tractor trailer containing $75,000 worth of soup, appeared in bond court Monday. "This is the first time the court's ever seen $75,000 worth of soup stolen," said Broward Circuit Judge John Hurley, who set his bond at $25,000.

    The employee manning the gate would not open it for Nadelhoffer since it was apparent he was stealing the car, the report said, but he proceeded to crash the Camaro through the gate. He drove over the tire spikes, causing three tires to go flat, and fled north on I-95, where he was eventually stopped by a Fort Lauderdale Police sergeant, according to the report.

    A representative for Nadelhoffer told the judge that he was invoking the defendant’s right to remain silent and right to counsel.
