A Sunderland man has been charged in connection with the theft of more than $70,000 worth of trailers from a Guelph business last month.
According to the Guelph Police Service, the owner of a business on Victoria Road South reported on Oct. 25 that five brand new cargo trailers had been stolen.
“Surveillance video showed two suspects using a white Dodge Ram pickup to tow the trailers away one at a time,” reads a media release from police.
Investigators were notified Monday (Nov. 15) that one of the stolen trailers was advertised for sale online. That evening, officers from Guelph and the DRPS executed a warrant at a property in Sunderland.
“One of the stolen trailers was located, along with a white Dodge Ram matching the description of the involved vehicle. The remaining four trailers – valued at $12,000 to $15,000 each – remain outstanding,” reads a media release.
A 34-year-old Sunderland man, whose name has not been released, has been charged with three counts of break and enter, possessing stolen property over $5,000 and trafficking in stolen property.
He was returned to Guelph and held for a bail hearing.
